An enthusiastic and motivated group of artists, engineers, craftspeople, scientists, and misfit toys. The Black Rock Observatory team is building an astronomical observatory for Burning Man 2014 and beyond, complete with giant telescope and science exhibits.
Showing the universe as art is an admission that the truth is sufficiently beautiful and that it deserves our attention. The Black Rock Observatory will be a mobile observatory dedicated to the celebration of art and science.
Shown here designing and building a scale prototype model in March 2014, the team is now taking the next big step and make this happen. You can be a part of it. They have hit over 50% of the funding goal. kickstarter.com/projects/marsroverartcar/black-rock-observatory
