Join the Origins team as they travel to Antarctica. We sent Mary, Noel, Paul, and Julie to explore scientific wonders from McMurdo to the Pole. Learn all about the extreme science being conducted at the South Pole in a daily dispatch from Terra Australis Incognita! In the Exploratorium Live@ studio, we welcome Dr. Karen Kalumuk, who will talk about life in extreme conditions. For science fair competition taken to the third power, watch two veteran scientists as they battle head to head to determine who is the Iron Scientist. Home-town favorite, Exploratorium physicist, Dr. Dr. Paul Doherty will square off against heavy-weight contender, visiting Exploratorium Osher Fellow and Boston University astrophysicist Professor Kenneth Brecher. They have 5 minutes to teach their favorite activities, and then move on to the secret ingredients: marbles and panty hose Ever see a burning udder? Or a cement block crush a fax machine? Mechanical artistry takes new forms of whimsy as noted MIT sculptor/inventor Arthur Ganson creates tense moments of anticipation in Chain Reaction. Nine Aim High students explore shadow and light, and build their own energy machines. In this webcast, the students delve into energy transference and alternative energy sources like solar cells and wind power. In these archived webcasts from inside the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) exhibition hall, watch as Exploratorium senior scientist Tom Humphrey challenges some of the top scientists in the world to explain the phenomena behind selected exhibits from the museum floor. In this webcast: the String Squirter exhibit, as explained by a guest physicist Leon Lederman.

as explained by physicist and Nobel laureate Leon Lederman What does it mean to find the Higgs Boson at CERN? Hear how this elusive particle could change our understanding of physics. Follow CERN's Mission Impossible team as they race against the clock to collect all they need to bring antihydrogen back to CERN's webcast headquarters. Scientists at CERN in Switzerland explain to the Exploratorium's San Francisco audience why preparing for antimatter experiments is like arranging a marriage.
