"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known."

2019 Vanderbilt Hackathon

At the Vanderbilt Hackathon ('VandyHacks IV: Art Edition') my teammate and I created a virtual reality simulation of our interpretation of  the first art museum on Mars, featuring narration by a neural network Carl Sagan, 3-dimensional constellation exhibits, and a real-time map of the Martian sky using the Hipparcos Star Catalogue and SPICE Kernels. My role was to develop the constellations and star map by utilizing SPICE Kernels and the Hipparcos Star Catalogue, as well as the Skyfield and Astropy Python packages.
