January 4, 2015 is your last chance to check out Metamorphosis, a glowing, 12-foot-long steel sculpture shrouded in fine mist, a representation of a real comet known as 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. This comet is the target of the Rosetta Mission, the first ever to make a soft landing on a comet and study its chemical composition.
The sculpture, developed by David Delgado and Dan Goods of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, was designed and fabricated by architect Jason Klimoski of Brooklyn-based StudioKCA. It celebrates the Rosetta Mission and aims to spark curiosity about comets and how they behave.
Lit from within and emitting clouds of mist and water vapor, Metamorphosis evokes the glow and atmosphere of comets, which produce light, gas, and dust when heated by the Sun.
The exhibit is on display in front of the Exploratorium at Pier 15 in San Francisco from November 6, 2014–January 4, 2015,
