A new Ohio University-produced exhibit now traveling across the country brings the relative size and distance between planets in our solar system into focus. Here, Mangala Sharma, an Ohio University research assistant professor of physics and astronomy, explains the perspective "Planet Panorama" provides of the universe.

Sharma developed the original idea and basic design for the project. In partnership with area amateur astronomers and the Athens Public Library, she secured grant funding from NASA. Sharma asked Tom Statler, a professor of physics and astronomy who leads the university's Astrophysical Institute, and John Sabraw, an associate professor of art, to help her bring the exhibit to life.
