Homemade Fog with Liquid Nitrogen (Webcast)

Running Time: 00:11:47

Well, we tried our live webcast experiment and had some technical difficulties-there are always potential hazards when you make live programs. Nevertheless, here is the show, and we hope you enjoy it! Since there is rarely fog in the winter in San Francisco, Exploratorium Scientist Eric Muller will create fog using Liquid Nitrogen just outside the Museum.
Urban environments like San Francisco are full of mysterious natural and human-made phenomena. Why are there so many one-footed pigeons? Where does the sewage go? Why is our “summer” in May and September? The Exploratorium is “taking it outside" to explore these and other questions in engineering, ecology, optics, waves, geology, architecture, weather, and more. Look for new episodes once a month.
