Getting Science On a Sphere®
Science On a Sphere® is a patented turnkey system available from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminstration, NOAA. The process for acquiring SOS is straightforward and begins with contacting Bill Bendel, the SOS Program Manager. From first contact with NOAA to final installation, the process takes several months. The SOS installation calendar tends to fill up several months out, so be sure to contact NOAA early if you have specific installation dates in mind.
