NEW YORK (AP) - A NASA-designed orbit pavilion is among the cool things visitors can experience at New York City’s World Science Festival this week.

The interactive sculpture installation is among 50 events featured over the 5-day festival that opened Wednesday.

The orbit pavilion allows visitors to learn about Earth Science satellites, listen to their sounds in real time and view Earth through a 3-D program.

The annual festival takes science out of the lab with citywide events that include musical and theatrical performances.

Other highlights include scientific sails through New York Harbor and a science street fair in Washington Square Park.

Science Bob of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” will host a program on the coolest jobs in science.
