The Curiosity rover has an incredible tool mounted on the mast, called the "ChemCam",which is a rock-zapping laser and telescope! This laser can hit rock or soil targets up to about 23 ft (or 7 meters) away. In today's show, Ron and Paul will share details about this amazing suite of tools!
What is light? How is it made? In this video, staff physicist Ron Hipschman will talk about and demonstrate light, it's features and various ways it can be made as well as how colors mix. XTech at the Exploratorium empowers high school students through the practical use of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. Students develop skills - designing and building, creating media, and facilitating community education events - that will lead them into college and beyond.
In this show, we will be investigating lasers. Did you know that that LASER was an acronym? It stands for Light Amplification Stimulated by the Emission of Radiation. Join us in learning how a laser works, as well as a real world application for lasers, and finally, how they can create stunning light patterns.

In this show, we will be investigating color. There are colors all around us. Join us and explore the relationship between color and light. Watch as we create colored shadows and trick your mind with colors. Exploratorium Senior Scientist Paul Doherty explains a double rainbow sighting at Burning Man 2010! NOAA Chief Scientist Steve Hammond and Okeanos Commander Joe Pica introduce us to the capabilities of the new NOAA research vessel, the Okeanos Explorer, as it sets out on its maiden voyage to Indonesia.

Check out this teaser clip and come back for more on June 25th, 2010. Newton wasn’t really ready to believe that light was a wave, and so he didn’t see what was in front of his eyes. Staff physicist Paul Doherty tells how to do the same experiment that Newton did back in the 1650s to see the wave nature of light.
Most things won't burn on Mars—after all, the main ingredient in the Martian atmosphere, carbon dioxide, is used in fire extinguishers on earth. So how would one create fire without oxygen? Use metal!This slow motion footage shows magnesium burning within a block of dry ice.
Staff Neuroscientist Richard Brown demonstrates that the Giant Mirror reflects infrared radiation as well as visible light.
