Southeast of San Francisco, on the way out to California's Central Valley, thousands of wind turbines dot the landscape of Altamont Pass. Mounted both in rows and individually, machines with large propellers catch the wind, turning round and round at different speeds. Learn how wind energy is generated and stored for use in this most peculiar area, and its impact on living things both near and far. Únete a los científicos del Exploratorium e infórmate de las últimas hazañas del astromóvil Curiosidad que está paseando por el planeta Marte e investigando la posibilidad de que haya condiciones hospitalarias para sustentar la vida extraterrestre. In today's program, Exploratorium host Ron Hipschman will give a quick update on Curiosity and then revisit the MER rovers, Spirit and Opportunity. It's been a week since we did our last Mars webcast-join Exploratorium hosts Ron Hipschman and Linda Shore as they give us updates us on all the latest images and findings, and share a little bit about time on Mars. Curiosity has started roving! Join hosts Robyn and Ron as they bring the latest updates on Curiosity's progress, and then delve into investigating the nuclear power source on the rover.

Tardigrades are amazing creatures that can withstand the most extreme conditions on Earth, as well as the vacuum of space! This unique and charismatic animal has the ability to survive in a variety of situations. In today's program, Exploratorium scientist Karen Kalumuck will continue our programming about life in extreme environments as it relates to the search for 'habitability' on Mars. In today's program, Exploratorium scientists Paul Doherty and Karen Kalumuck will look at examples of life in extreme environments on Earth. As Mars is an extreme environment, the question remains-could it have supported any form of microbial life? Curiosity has picked the first rock to test out the ChemCam! In today's show,
Paul and Robyn will go over new images from Mars, updates, and and talk about the geology of Mars.
