Aeolian Landscape is an exhibit in which a miniature wind-swept desert landscape is recreated by an electric fan and finely ground sand that mimics the process of wind picking up and depositing small particles. Visitors can change the direction of the fan, influencing the shape of the dunes. At the Balancing Ball exhibit, a plastic beach ball floats mysteriously several feet above a large plastic cone. Upon closer inspection, the ball is found to be floating on a stream of air blowing out of the cone; visitors interact with the ball, changing its position in relation to the air flow. Artist Sheldon Brown creates an urban/suburban/rural environment in which the visitor literally "paints" the flying landscape with highways, buildings, and automobiles. This exhibit was part of the Virtual Unreality exhibition. What's Christmas like at the South Pole? Also learn about the Race Around the World and the installation of the telescope's new receiver. An clip of the Aeolian Landscape exhibit by artist Ned Kahn. Blowing air sculpts sand into an ever-changing landscape. The concept of space-time--perhaps Einstein's most fundamental contribution to our understanding of the universe--will be explored using special red lasers. Using a simple ball-bearing model, Exploratorium Senior Scientist Dr. Paul Doherty demonstrates Brownian Motion and explains how it proves the existence of atoms. 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. This week’s “secret” ingredient: CD cases! After its long journey to Saturn's largest moon, Titan, the Huygens probe is released from the Cassini spacecraft. The Huygens probe completes its descent to Titan, capturing hundreds of images on its way. Join Senior Scientist Paul Doherty as he gives us background on this incredible mission and sets the stage for the first close-up images of this mysterious moon. 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.
