As part of the weekend of celebrations in honor of the Golden Gate Bridge's 75th Anniversary, Mickey Hart and the Mickey Hart Band closed the festivities with a free concert. The show opened with Mickey playing a dynamic model of the Golden Gate Bridge created by the Exploratorium and sonified by Exploratorium exhibit developers in collaboration with Mickey Hart.

Paul Stepahin is an Exploratorium exhibit developer who has a background in physics. He's worked on exhibits such as Elephant Turntable and Additor. Paul's knowledge and love of computer science and complex math has made him a resource for Exploratorium staff. In this program, Paul discusses the theoretical math P versus NP problem.

Invisibility, teleportation, mind reading���the stuff of science fiction, right? Yet much of today���s technology was once considered impossible. Given enough time, couldn���t incredible ideas like these also become commonplace? In this unique presentation, author and physicist Dr. Michio Kaku brings to life the science behind parallel universes and other fantastic phenomena. He���ll discuss the role of nanotechnology in learning to simulate invisibility, explain why NASA envisions sending ���nanoships��� to the stars, and reveal how nanoscience may provide an escape from the death of the universe itself.

A century after publication of Einstein's famous papers on light and relativity, this most celebrated of Nobel Laureates will be the subject of a talk by award-winning science writer K.C. Cole. She'll discuss the ways in which Einstein continues to influence physics today, from detecting gravity waves to understanding string theory.

12:47:56
The concept of space-time--perhaps Einstein's most fundamental contribution to our understanding of the universe--will be explored using special red lasers.
