A digital Coronavirus exhibit based on real science

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us, more than ever, the importance of science communication. The new Coronavirus exhibit in Inside Explorer communicates scientific research on the SARS-CoV-2 virus and COVID-19 in a way that makes it easier to grasp the ever changing reality we are living in.

The updated Corona Exhibition 2.0 is coming in January 2022.
Watch the preview here!

Interactive 3D visualizations

Investigate the spike protein up close

The SARS-CoV-2 spike proteins plays a central role in infecting our human cells, and it is a target for both antibodies and vaccine designers. To support this message users can study a real Spike protein from the SARS-CoV-2 virus scanned using cutting edge CRYO Electron Microscope technology.

Examine COVID-19 infected lungs

All over the the world, Chest CT scans are used to determine the severity of the COVID-19 disease and to study the visual damage that the virus may cause to the lungs. Witness the dramatic appearance of a COVID-19 infection aggressively spreading through the lungs of a 73 year old patient.

Follow the tracks of the pandemic

The Corona Exhibition will guide the user from the first confirmed case of COVID-19 reported in Wuhan, China in December 2019 through the world wide outbreak, tracking the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic via an interactive 3D globe.

Collaborative partners

The COVID-19 related exhibition in Inside Explorer will enable users to explore both the virus itself and the effects on the human body. In the same way as our other exhibits, it is based on the latest scientific data, such as scans from 3D electron microscopes and Computed Tomography (CT).
