Braille Text And Tactile Diagrams Make The Moon More
NASA has released a new book for visually impaired people to
experience the wonders of the moon.
Called 'Getting a Feel for Lunar Craters', the 17-page book
features Braille and tactile diagrams of the lunar surface, craters
and peaks. The book was created and funded by NASA's Lunar Science
Institute (NLSI), at Moffett Field, CA. The author is David Hurd, a
space science professor at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania in
"This book is one giant step for humankind, making lunar science
visible through touch and sound," NLSI Director Yvonne Pendleton
said. "NASA is committed to the development of resources to bring
lunar science into the world of those who cannot see."
NLSI is a virtual organization that enables collaborative,
interdisciplinary research in support of NASA lunar science
programs. The institute uses technology to bring scientists
together around the world and comprises competitively selected U.S.
teams and several international partners.
