Join Exploratorium scientists Paul Doherty and Isabel Hawkins for a live webcast as they share information about the Rosetta Mission, which is due to be "woken up" on January 20th, 2014. Rosetta is a spacecraft en route to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, where it will make the most detailed study of a comet ever attempted. Exploratorium Senior Scientist Paul Doherty discusses the science of dust devils and describes how vortices are created in the Black Rock Desert. This After Dark event explored the diverse nomadic communities that thrive in the Bay Area including a mobile diner, food carts, an annual arts event in the desert, urban foragers, and Bay creatures that arrived by ballast water.
The two Mars Rovers are alive and well after surviving their second Martian winter. Come and see photos of discoveries they made during their third year on Mars, with Exploratorium Senior Scientist Paul Doherty.
On December 11, 2005, Opportunity, one of the twin rovers exploring Mars, celebrated its first Martian birthday. Opportunity had been on the red planet 687 Earth days, which is one Martian year. (A year is the time it takes a planet to make a complete loop around the sun). Join us for a look back over the those 687 days of discovery: what we learned, what we saw, and what questions remained unanswered. Take a look inside a comet! Launched on Jan. 12, 2005, the Deep Impact spacecraft hurtled through space on a collision course with an enormous comet. Join senior scientist Paul Dougherty as he explores this exciting mission.
