Astronomy with all five senses

In my May 11 column, I referenced a bunch of people and organizations that are working to make astronomy a multi-sensory experience. Here are some of the sites I mentioned.

Touch the Universe: A Braille Book of Astronomy

Total Eclipse, SE Australia, 1976, sound sculpture by Bill Fontana

And my personal favorite: The edible space shuttle for vegetarians and a shuttle dog for omnivores.
