On March 1st, we connected live with scientists aboard the scientific drilling vessel the JOIDES Resolution off the coast of Antarctica. Meet geologists Rob Dunbar, Carlota Escutia, and Christina Riesselman and learn about their historic expedition to Antarctica that is helping reveal the history of Earth's climate and teaching us about our climate future. This short video summarizes all of the steps in collecting an ice core using the Deep Ice Sheet Coring (DISC) drill. Thomas Bauska, of Oregon State University helped Heidi Roop put together this video. Ken Murphy, creator of A History of the Sky— a time-lapse visualization that will span an entire year—talks about his project during the After Dark event, Resolution.
Join A, K. C. Cole, author of Something Incredibly Wonderful Happens: Frank Oppenheimer and the World He Made Up, in conversation with Exploratorium Director Dr. Dennis Bartels, eminent San Francisco Chronicle science writer David Perlman, Cinema Arts Director Liz Keim, and Exploratorium physicist Thomas Humphrey. A question-and-answer session followed the panel discussion.
Produced by Thorne Films, this very early 1972 film details some of the history and thought that went into the creation of the Exploratorium as told by its founding director, Frank Oppenheimer. Geologist Chistina Riesselman explains how studying 3-million-year-old sediment from Antarctica is providing a glimpse of what our planet's climate might look like if atmospheric carbon dioxide continues to rise as projected. In this panel discussion, the panelists will examine the impacts of climate change on Hawaiian ecosystems and populations. The panelists will include:
Phil McGillivary, Leon Geschwind, Amber Inwood, and Ku’ulei Rogers. As part of the ECHO Climate Change Symposium, join artist Xavier Cortada as he discusses some ways that the world is participating in actions around climate change. This panel discussion will examine ways to communicate climate change to the non-scientific community. Panelists: Amber Inwood, Leon Geschwind, Kathy Ahgeak, and Robyn Higdon. Join the ECHO Climate Change Symposium and sit in on a keynote address from Charles Wohlforth, author of the 'The Whale and the Supercomputer'.
