Join Dr. Russell Schnell, the director of the Global Monitoring Division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), as he talks about what it takes to monitor climate change. As a special event in conjunction with the 2009 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting, we connected a live audience at the Exploratorium with scientists at the South Pole. Learn about atmospheric research at the South Pole from NOAA's Nick Morgan, the IceCube neutrino detector from Mark Krasberg and Laura Gladstone, and the South Pole Telescope from Bill Holzapfel. Meet Dr. Ethan Brodsky from the U. of Wisconsin, who advised a group of undergraduate students in the design and build of an electric snowmobile. Video produced by Ice Stories correspondent Zoe Courville. 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 Exploratorium physicists Paul Doherty and Stephanie Chasteen as they examine the past, present, and future of climate change. Watch as Paul and Stephanie demonstrate how you can look at a slice of climate from the past, what a sediment core might look like, and the secrets hidden in an ice balloon! On the occasion of Hubble's 15th birthday we unveil two spectacular mosaic images from the telescope, discuss the amazing accomplishments of Hubble during the past 15 years, and look at some of the images from space. After a week of analyzing the data from the Huygens probe, do scientists think of Titan differently? What were the unexpected findings? Which hypotheses were wrong? Which were correct? Join us as we talk to mission scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and get the latest on this enigmatic moon. After its long journey to Saturn's largest moon, Titan, the Huygens probe is released from the Cassini spacecraft. The Huygens probe completes its descent to Titan, capturing hundreds of images on its way. Join Senior Scientist Paul Doherty as he gives us background on this incredible mission and sets the stage for the first close-up images of this mysterious moon. Join Senior Scientist Paul Doherty as we receive the first images of Titan, Jupiter's largest moon, from the European Space Agency headquarters in Darmstadt, Germany. The Huygens probe, released from the Cassini spacecraft, descended to Titan and captured hundreds of images of this mysterious moon. Paul Doherty and Ron Hipschman discuss the clouds and atmosphere of Saturn. Learn how to make a cloud in your kitchen or an atmosphere in a soda bottle!
