January 31, 2008: Adler Planetarium showcases Mercury photos from NASA

As high-resolution digital imagery captured by sky surveys and satellite missions continue to build bigger and better maps of our galaxy, the Adler Planetarium and Astronomy Museum has taking a modern approach to high-tech exhibit development. Its Space Visualization Laboratory (SVL) is a working laboratory on the main exhibit floor that features a variety of scientific visualization applications and display technologies many of which came out of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL). In a January 31, 2008 article in the CHICAGO TRIBUNE, Adler treats its visitors to the newest high-resolution images of the planet Mercury snapped by the space probe MESSENGER, displayed on EVL-developed tiled display walls.
