The first-ever live event inside the NASA clean room, where space hardware is being prepared for the Hubble Space Telescope. We'll get dressed in "bunny suits" to explore the room and show you the activities of engineers and scientists getting ready for the next Hubble servicing mission in November.

Join us for an interactive webcast that includes a visit to Museo La Specola in Florence, Italy. The museum houses a collection of exquisite life-sized wax medical models that in the late 18th century represented the cutting edge of 3-dimensional imaging technology. We'll also talk with Dr. Hugh Patterson, Chief Anatomy Professor at UCSF, about how today's medical students study anatomy, and with John Murray of 3-D Systems, about the latest developments in solid object imaging.

On May 13, 2000, we peeked under the wrappings of an Egyptian mummy from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. A live video link connected us to the imaging center at UC San Francisco. Radiologist Dr. Henry Goldberg and Fine Arts museum conservator Lesley Bone guided us through the CT scan and helped to interpret the findings.
