This column shares interviews with professionals using science in the workplace. In this month’s issue Carter Emmart describes what it is like to be a visualization scientist.
This article is about a very interesting career in creating visualizations of the known universe in 3D and 4D. The scientist uses all kinds of resources to create his images. But he still emphasizes an appreciation of the planet Earth we live on and are traveling through the universe on!!

This unique career turns ideas, concepts, processes, events, structures, and trends into images that help us better understand what is going on. This scientist is the director of ‘astrovisualization’ for the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) which includes the Hayden Planetarium in New York City. He uses computer modeling and astronomy to create images that are not only three dimensional but sometimes four dimensional. Coming from the area of visual arts his career path is somewhat unique and interesting. Students interested in our universe would really enjoy reading about him and what he does.
