Is the sky the limit? Not for author, artist, filmmaker and journalist Michael Benson. By digitally enhancing data from NASA's interplanetary probes, including the Voyager and Viking programs, Benson makes that which is remote and distant—the far reaches of space—accessible and approachable for the general public. The result is a series of planetary landscapes, complimented by educational text about the planets, their moons, and the probes that helped produce the images. Planetary Landscapes will be on display in the AAAS Art Gallery, 1200 New York Ave. NW, weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information, visit the AAAS Art Gallery page.
The Coalition meeting will focus on Article 15 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, which guarantees everyone the right to enjoy the benefits of scientific progress and its applications.
