FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - In this week's episode of Cool Science Monday, Martin Fisher from Science Central shows us a science exhibit called Science On a Sphere.

It's an exhibit that has a hollow spherical screen suspended in the middle of the room with 4 projectors, one in each corner of the room. A series of computers allows images to be projected onto the screen in high-def, high-resolution format. It allows the Sphere to look like the Earth, or any planet in the solar system, or to show earthquake or tsunami activity, or connect to live weather satellites.
