    Default Transforming Iconic Hubble Images into Musical of Our Universe!



    Hello!

    We are a maker-family and like to make space projects to increase our own knowledge about our Universe and for demonstration and outreach to the #NextGen.

    Hubble Space Telescope was recently in news because of malfunctioning gyros but the problem is resolved and the Telescope is back in science mode.

    We took this opportunity to learn more about 28 years old Hubble and 1.3 million observations it has made.

    We created a Musical of our Universe - from Birth of Stars to Galaxies of Stars, to Death of Stars by converting 3 Iconic Hubble Telescope Images: the Pillars of Creation, the Hubble Ultra Deep Field and the Supernova 1987A into sound using Python Program. It allows beauty of the Universe to be experienced by everyone, including those who are blind or visually impaired.

    We converted the Red Green Blue values of Hubble Images into Gray Scale Values. Pooled the Gray Scale values (by taking the mean and maximum values of 2 x 2 matrix of the entire image) using Python Programming. This captured the key features of the image. And then transformed these values into frequencies and played the notes associated with these frequencies to create a three part - Musical of our Universe.

    To get a 30-second feel of the process and to hear the Musical, you can go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=_vSwtJ481lo

    Complete project details are at: https://hotpoprobot.com/2018/10/23/d...-2018-toronto/

    This project also won the NASA SpaceApps Toronto 2018.

    Best regards,
    Vikas Nath
