An Exploratorium and NASA Sun-Earth Connection Education Forum Event
Overnight eclipse viewing party at Exploratorium begins July 31, 2008 at
9pm. and continues through Friday, August 1 in the wee hours.
San Francisco's Exploratorium brings its fifth eclipse expedition team to
remote Xinjiang Province in Northwestern China, very close to the Mongolian
border, where the Exploratorium will webcast a total solar eclipse live to
the world. Spend the Night at the Exploratorium! See the eclipse in person
live at the Exploratorium. Pack your sleeping bag and camp out on the museum
floor for an overnight eclipse party...or come to the viewing party in Second Life and enjoy the live webcast, exhibits, and music.
Join us as we celebrate the beginning of summer in the Arctic and the long, cold winter in Antarctica. We'll connect live to two polar field sites: Summit Camp atop Greenland's vast ice sheet, where the sun will be shining 24 hours a day, and the South Pole Research Station, now in the middle of 6 months of darkness.
How does the interaction of solar radiation on sea ice effect climate change?
Please join us as we chat live with Dr. Don Perovich, an expert in the fields of albedo effect, and sea-ice mass balance on climate.
At the National Ice Core Lab in Denver, Colorado, scientists study ice cores in a Class 100 clean room lab kept at minus 7 degrees F. Join us for more conversation with David Ainley and other researchers studying Adelie penguins in Antarctica’s Ross Sea. Scientist working on the South Pole Telescope explain data collection, focusing on the telescope's receiver, a precise instrument with a thousand "eyes" pointed to the distant universe. Hear more from scientists working on the Ice Cube telescope at the South Pole. Meet glaciologist Slawek Tulaczyk and his team, who work in the fast-emerging field of ice sheet dynamics. They speak to us just after returning from a month at a remote camp on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. Watch as three giant helium balloons are launched above Antarctica to study climate history; listen as scientists talk about balloon research. Scientists at Palmer Research Station in Antarctica talk about their research: How is the rich marine ecosystem just offshore responding to melting sea ice and global climate change?
