Requests are now being accepted for those wishing to receive a free set of 12 printed posters that have been created as a scaled-down version of the IAU100 Above and Beyond Exhibition.
Designed with Science Now, the IAU100 Above and Beyond exhibition showcases some of the most significant and surprising astronomical breakthroughs that have shaped science, technology and culture over the last century.
This special exhibition has been scaled-down to a special set of 12 A0 posters that feature the exhibition’s highlights. Like the full exhibition, it was designed to bring beautiful and insightful astronomical storytelling to the general public in the spirit of open science. This version is well suited for display at meetings, universities, schools, societies and other venues. IAU100 is now accepted requests from individuals, organisations and institutions who wish to receive a free set of these 12 posters. Applications can be submitted through this form.
The posters’ electronic files can be accessed here. All of the exhibition’s content and designs were also previously made available under an open source license for adaptation and further reuse. In addition to the new scaled down version of 12 posters, the open source designs support the reproduction of the exhibition in its full scale as a standalone experience (150sq meters, modular design) as well as a low-cost version based on posters and community localization. These open source materials can be downloaded from the exhibition website.
