Starting from #Asteroids and #Exoplanets where we shared the Research behind our #SpaceRex project (for Asteroid Detection using #ArtificialIntelligence) and #TRAPPIST1 project (where large Resonant Chains which provide stability to this Exoplanetary system), we move to our Sun! SpaceRex project for Asteroid DetectionTrappist-1 project modeled on Harmonic Resonant Chains of the exoplanetary system
We wondered if Astronomers can find planets around stars 1000s of light years using Transit Method (dip in star's brightness because of orbiting planets) could we use this method on our parent Star- the Sun?

A unique opportunity came on 21 Aug 2017- the #TotalSolarEclipse in US Path of 21 August 2017 Total Solar Eclipse
Solar eclipses happen when Moon's shadow falls on the Earth as it passes between us and the Sun.

On 21 Aug 2017, Moon would pass between Sun and the Earth, appearing to block the Sun for almost 90 mins.

We wanted to measure dip in Sun's Brightness during this Transit Event.

Inspired by the resonant chain of #TRAPPIST1 Planetary System and… we decided to create a physical model of Trappist-1’s Musical System: where the motion of planets would be controlled by the music they generate and would synchronize for a grand finale!
It required learning musical notes, coding of midi files, Reaper Software, programming Arduino, relays, LED lights: a very challenging project for our Maker Family.

So we had to do it!

It took us over 3 weeks to build this project.
Check out the final video of the #TRAPPIST1 Exoplanetary Sound and Light Show below.
