How does your eye work? You see the world because light gets into your eyes. Your eye uses that light to make an image of the world inside your eye—just as a camera uses light to make a photograph. At the Exploratorium, we dissect cow eyes to show people how an eye functions, and look at the parts that make up an eye.
This video shows and explains a dissection with one of our staff Explainers. Paul Doherty and Eric Wegryn explore the latest photos of Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, taken from only 750 miles away by the Huygens probe. Dr. Paul Doherty and Dr. Eric Weygren discuss the most intriguing moon in the Solar System, Titan. Titan is veiled in a mysterious, dense, foggy atmosphere. Watch as the best teachers on the planet battle it out for the title of Iron Science Teacher. In this zany competition teachers will have ten minutes to create a science activity. Tee off with this week’s “secret” ingredient-golf balls! Astronomers in many parts of the world watched as Venus moved across the disk of the Sun, one of the rarest planetary alignments. The Exploratorium webcast this historic event from Greece. The Live @ cast and crew take a journey to our Nation's Capitol for a special politically-charged edition of Iron Science Teacher. The competitors must create a math or science activity that is politically correct and leaves no child behind.
