In this historical video from 1996, which was originally made for a museum floor installation, we learn about both the Palace of Fine Arts and the roots of the Exploratorium. This piece mixes footage from films in the Exploratorium's collection and interviews with historians, architects, and museum staff. On the cliffs above San Francisco's Ocean Beach perches a landmark observatory—a giant camera obscura. Step inside with Robert Tacchetto and see how this centuries-old technology creates enchanting images of the outside world.
Watch highlights from our live webcasts with the E/V Nautilus as she explored the Mediterranean and Black Seas searching for shipwreck, deep sea vents and the communities of organisms that live in these extreme environments. Join the Exploratorium crew on a visit to the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, where we will learn more about the ecological impact of plastic debris in the North Pacific Gyre.

We discuss the highlights of their three month expedition to the Mediterranean and Black Seas, as well as to the eastern Atlantic Ocean. Learn about hydrothermal vents, organisms living in extreme environments and ancient shipwrecks. The Nautilus has discovered several well-preserved shipwrecks on their mission, from ancient Greek trading vessels to modern sailboats. Join us as we talk with chief scientist Katy Croff Bell live aboard the Nautilus and see the latest video of their discoveries. Take a look at the construction at Piers 15 and 17 from a different vantage point. This past August we recorded video of the Exploratorium's new home from a boat about 100 yards off the back of the piers. Located in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Portugal, the seamounts of Gorringe Bank rise nearly 5000 meters from the sea floor -- as tall as Europe's Alps. Join us as we talk live with scientists aboard the Nautilus as they explore these geologically active and biologically rich submarine mountains. Join Exploratorium educator Ken Finn as he unlocks the mystery behind the black sand (a.k.a. magnetite) at Ocean Beach. This piece explores the origin of magnetite in the Sierra Nevada mountains, its journey down the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers to the Bay, and the interesting physical properties of this mineral, plus some fun things you can do with it. In this program, we connect live with marine scientists at the Okeanos' Exploration Command Center in Seattle, learn about the mission's latest discoveries and see new video of some of the amazing animals they've encountered on their mission.
Look over the shoulders of ocean explorers as they map and send their ROV into the little-known and unknown regions of the deep sea. "Voyages of Discovery" connects the Exploratorium with NOAA's newest ship, the Okeanos Explorer, currently in the Pacific Ocean near Indonesia, as it carries out its first exploration voyage.
