The most difficult phase of the Rosetta mission is the final rendezvous with the fast-moving comet. Learn what steps the ESA scientists and engineers are taking to ensure a successful landing for November 2014.
Join the Exploratorium's very own Ken Finn as he demonstrates fun activities, mixing up science with items found around the house. Join Exploratorium staff scientist Ron Hipschman as we visit Dan Werthimer, Director of the SETI Research Center at UC Berkeley. SETI conducts experiments searching for electromagnetic signatures of intelligent extraterrestrial civilizations, spanning wavelengths from radio to visible light, over ten orders of magnitude in characteristic time scale. Cities are known to produce a lot of light pollution, making it a challenge for astronomy enthusiasts to view the heavens within city limits. For us in the SF Bay Area, these issues apply, however, exciting results can still be attained between sky gazing and learning about how we all fit into this big thing we call "space".
Urban Astronomer Paul Salazar, The Exploratorium's very own Adam Esposito and more demonstrate how to deal with the parameters and the unforgettable experiences that await with simple to no equipment, the right conditions, and some decent timing. Science of Cocktails at the Exploratorium celebrates the artistry of master mixology shaken with the science behind the craft. TV personality and comedian, Zane Lamprey (Three Sheets, Drinking Made Easy), takes an in-depth, hands-on look at the physics, chemistry, and biology of cocktails, and engages in an exploration of your favorite libations in ways you've never experienced before.

This short documentary chronicles the people, places, things, and ideas at the core of The Windows, a four-day trek from the back deck of the Exploratorium to the top of Mount Diablo. Led by artist Harrell Fletcher and the Exploratorium's Center for Art & Inquiry in the summer of 2013, the walk involved a dozen hikers and dozens more participants and learning experiences en route to the summit.
http://www.exploratorium.edu/arts/the-windows Join Exploratorium scientists Paul Doherty and Isabel Hawkins for a live webcast as they share information about the Rosetta Mission, which is due to be "woken up" on January 20th, 2014. Rosetta is a spacecraft en route to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, where it will make the most detailed study of a comet ever attempted. How can a bugle make so many notes even though it has no valves? We’ll find out about how waves can fit into pipes, strings and rods in this webcast.
Join Ron Hipschman at a live webcast where he’ll investigate sound waves, interference, beats, and harmonics. What is sound? How high a pitch can you hear? Can two sounds add up to no sound? Explore these questions and more in this resonant presentation.
