This animation is from the opening ceremonies for the World Science Forum 2017 held in Jordan. The animation played after a pre recorded video message from members aboard the International Space Station. The graphics simulate a camera traveling along with the ISS and then zooming down into Jordan. The odd pixel ratio format of 3040 x 848 is the format for 5 to 1 projection onto the main stage video screen. The forum was held in Jordan on the Dead Sea in November of 2017. The purpose of the forum was to bring attention to the social and economic relevance, influence and responsibilities of science. In attendance at the summit were over 3000 scientific delegates from over 120 nations all dedicated to searching for scientific solutions for peace. Forum Plenary sessions were moderated by Theoretical physicist and renowned public speaker Michio Kaku.
