A work from “Reef Grid” by @dianeburko on view in #glaciersreefs. Coral reefs become more colorful when they are stressed, just before bleaching begins. Did you know that the color “living coral” was named the 2019 @pantone color of the year? #ru_red_18 #cpnas

An unusual perspective on one of our terrace lights. Above the woman’s head is a crown with a layered depiction of earth, sky, and water. The light was designed by #LeeLawrie and dates from 1924. The architecture of the building incorporates many Greek & Egyptian elements with an Art Deco flair. ✨✨✨ Photo 📷 by @killah.poopface. #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences

O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree How lovely are thy branches #whpjoyful

To Science - pilot of industry, conqueror of disease, multiplier of the harvest, explorer of the universe, revealer of Natures laws, eternal guide to truth. In addition to bikes and cats, I am passionate about my career as a scientist. Enjoyed participating in a @thenasciences workshop for the first time this week. Its a pretty cool joint! #cpnas 👩‍🔬

A #sciart sculpture by our 2017 #DASER speaker @juliabuntaine on view at Friday’s #thelongconvo. This wire sculpture is part of her Wave(s) series in which she imagines brain waves in 3-D. Read more about it in a Dec. 5 @smithsonianmagazine article. #ru_letter_s #cpnas

This week, @cpnas installed a half-scale model of the GOES (Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite) I-M in @thenasciences building. The GOES satellites provide images of weather systems across the globe and gather scientific data on the Earth’s atmosphere. Each GOES satellite is placed in a geostationary orbit 35,800 kilometers (about 22,200 miles) above the equator. From this vantage point, GOES can provide intensive coverage of a regions daily weather developments as well as warnings of severe storms. This model is courtesy of @airandspacemuseum. . #cpnas #theamericancollective #welivetoexplore #wegramthistown #passionpassport #onlyindc #washingtondaily #ig_unitedstates #scalemodel #washingtondc #mydccool

This lenticular print goes from a glacier to a reef! ❄️🌊🌎 See it in person for the full experience in #GlaciersReefs by @dianeburko. #circles_ru #cpnas #sciart

Today we installed a half-scale model of the GOES I-M satellite in the NAS North Court. GOES satellites provide images which support weather forecasting, severe storm tracking, and meteorology research. The GOES I-M generation operated from 1994-2013. The latest generation of satellites, initiated in 2016, is GOES R. This model is courtesy of @airandspacemuseum. #cpnas

A beautiful photo of the Great Hall by 📷: @travel_run_puppy_repeat. ✨✨✨ The iconography of the Great Hall ceiling was designed by #HildrethMeière. The project was her first major architectural commission and launched her 40-year career. The designs are done in the streamlined Art Deco style that became her trademark. She went on to complete 100+ commissions including the roundels of Dance, Drama, and Song at Radio City Music Hall. See this beautiful space for yourself on weekdays, 9-5. #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences

Power lines intersect with the lines of satellite orbit trajectories in this detail of Julie Anand & Damon Sauer’s “Calibration Mark AL58 with Satellites” 2018. The area of the Sonoran desert where they are photographing is rapidly changing from agricultural to suburban and many power lines are being installed. They map the orbits of satellites in the sky overhead onto the photo later using their computer. #coronalandmarks #cpnas #ru_lines_18 #sciart

Watch Julie Anand & Damon Sauer take a photograph of Calibration Mark X48 in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona. They took this photo in July 2017 and had to complete the shoot before 8 a.m. when temperatures reach 100 degrees F. The final work and full video are on view in the exhibition #CoronaLandmarks at NAS. #cpnas

O for oceans. A lenticular print by @dianeburko in #glaciersreefs. 🌊 #ru_letter_o

A planet or a Petri dish? @dianeburko evokes both with her reef lenticular print series in #glaciersreefs @cpnas. These prints are like holograms and you have to see them in person for the full experience.

Why do some innovations last? David Edwards discusses at #DASER on Nov. 15. Register via profile link. 📚💡🎨 🔬 Every year, Harvard professor David Edwards teaches a wildly popular class called “How to Create Things & Have Them Matter.” His students are taught to generate, develop, and realize breakthrough ideas for social and cultural change. Drawing on his experience in applied mathematics and as a radical innovator in the medical technology field—including inhalable insulin—Edwards hopes to scare his students away from traditional ways of thinking about inventing new products and services. Edwards’ new book, Creating Things That Matter: The Art and Science of Innovations That Last (Henry Holt, 2018), is his manifesto. #cpnas #lasertalks

Julie Anand & Damon Sauer’s Ground Truth: #CoronaLandmarks is a photography exhibition about surveillance during the Cold War. Long before Google Maps, the U.S. government was secretly taking detailed photos of remote locations in the Soviet Union & China. Concrete markers like the one seen here were used to calibrate the spy satellites. 🕵️‍♂️ 🗺 🌏 #cpnas #sciart

The National Academy of Sciences is a private, nonprofit organization. Many people are surprised to learn that we are not part of the government. #ru_letter_n #cpnas

What remains in the sky and on the earth from a Cold War-era surveillance program? In the late 1950s, markers were placed in a 16 square mile grid near Casa Grande, AZ to calibrate satellites spying on China and the Soviet Union. The project was declassified in 1995 and around 180 of the markers remain today. See artists Julie An and Damon Sauer’s photography exhibit from @CPNAS for a unique look at surveillance and science in art.

A cheerful photo of our Constitution Avenue facade from 📷 @slightlystygianscully. 🏛Some facts about the façade: It is made of New York Dover marble which contains deposits of magnesium that sparkle in the sun; ✨ the beautiful carving above the door is an allegory of evolution; the bronze doors consist of eight panels, each presenting a major event in the history of science including Aristotle, Euclid, Galileo, Newton, Lyell, Darwin, Watt, and Pasteur. #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences

Most calibration markers from the Corona Project are made of concrete, but a few are made primarily of rocks. Artists Julie Anand and Damon Sauer hypothesize that it is because they were constructed at higher elevations and the weight of the materials, including water at 8 pounds per gallon, would be too labor intensive to transport. Only markers at higher elevations were built from rocks. The artists like the way the rock references earlier civilizations’ rock formations which were also meant to be seen from the sky. See this image in our Upstairs Gallery. #coronalandmarks #coronaproject #cpnas

The wood is American walnut and the electric chandelier’s design is based on a 1515 map of the globe by Leonardo da Vinci. The plaster bas relief in the windows and on the ceiling was designed by Lee Lawrie. #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences

#CoronaLandmarks is on view in our Upstairs Gallery. For the past three years, Julie Anand and Damon Sauer have been photographing concrete markers in the Arizona desert that are relics of the Corona Project, a Cold War-era surveillance program. In the late 1950s, roughly 273 markers were placed in a 16 square mile grid near Casa Grande, AZ to calibrate satellites spying on China and the Soviet Union. The project was declassified in 1995 and around 180 of the markers remain today. Photographs of 20 are on view in our gallery. See it through Feb. 22, 2019! #ru_warmtones #cpnas

On view now! Ground Truth: Corona Landmarks features images by Julie Anand and Damon Sauer of what remains of the Corona Project, a Cold War era surveillance program. 🌏🛰Concrete markers in the Arizona desert helped calibrate satellites the US government used to spy on China and the Soviet Union. Many of the markers remain, and Anand and Sauer have spent three years photographing them. Later, they overlay the trajectories of satellites that were in the sky at the moment they took the picture. In this image, the satellite trajectories overlap with power lines. Pictured: Calibration Mark AL58 with Satellites, 2015, archival pigment print. #CoronaLandmarks #Cpnas #sciart
