Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of two websites maintained by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics as they existed on August 22, 2018. The Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics is jointly administered by the Harvard College Observatory and the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. The "Aesthetics and Astronomy" website documents a project of the same name which studies the perception of multi-wavelength astronomical imagery and the effects of the scientific and artistic choices in processing astronomical data. The website documents the project and its findings. "LIGHT: Beyond the Bulb" is an open-source international exhibition program that showcases the incredible variety of light-based science being researched today across the electromagnetic spectrum, across scientific disciplines, and across technological platforms. The Chandra X-ray Observatory and SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, are jointly leading the program in conjunction with the International Astronomical Union for the International Year of Light 2015. The website includes information about the program and about creating or hosting an exhibition as well as an image collection. Materials are in electronic format.
