I flipped out for Seminconductor’s amazing art/sciene visualization film “Magnetic Movie”, where they interviewed NASA scientists and then visually realized the invisible affects of magnetic fields they were discussing. A brilliant collision of fact and visual interpretation.
Now Semiconductor is at it again with “Black Rain”, this time turning their focus from the Earth’s magnetic fields to all the sounds of the universe itself…

“Black Rain is sourced from images collected by the twin satellite, solar mission, STEREO. Here we see the HI (Heliospheric Imager) visual data as it tracks interplanetary space for solar wind and CME’s (coronal mass ejections) heading towards Earth. Data courtesy of courtesy of the Heliospheric Imager on the NASA STEREO mission.
Working with STEREO scientists, Semiconductor collected all the HI image data to date, revealing the journey of the satellites from their initial orientation, to their current tracing of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. Solar wind, CME’s, passing planets and comets orbiting the sun can be seen as background stars and the milky way pass by.”
