Riotously colorful bacteria and mobile mosses meet carnivorous plants and rotting carcasses in this impressionistic journey through the Life Sciences area at the Exploratorium. Biologist Kristina Yu and exhibit developer Denise King share their love for the mighty (and mightily underappreciated) microorganism.
Join us as we speak with IBM Fellow Dr. Don Eigler, who first used a scanning tunneling microscope to demonstrate the ability to build structures at the atomic level by spelling “I-B-M” with individual atoms. Also, meet Tom Rockwell, Director of Public Exhibition at the Exploratorium, who describes, in an audio essay, how he imagines the land of the very small. Witness the amazing development of live embryos at the microscope imaging station, part of the Traits of Life Collection. Using a simple ball-bearing model, Exploratorium Senior Scientist Dr. Paul Doherty demonstrates Brownian Motion and explains how it proves the existence of atoms.
