Robots have gone where no one has gone before and sent back photographs of things never before seen. Witness robot-captured photos of hellaciously hot venus, cryogenically cold Titan, and many places in between. Join Exploratorium Senior Scientist Paul Doherty to a brief exploration of the images that have captured our imaginations. As cameras became more sophisticated, so too did our understanding of projective geometry. In this brief talk, we’ll explore how the art of photography has helped reveal the elegant mathematics of vision. Watch the Exploratorium's construction process from December 2010 to November 2012 in under two minutes. Come see for yourself—doors open at Pier 15 on April 17, 2013.

Exploratorium neuroscientist Richard Brown discusses how we see color, how color vision evolved, why color vision varies from person to person, and how the scientific understanding of color vision has led to technologies such as color photography Join photographer David Arnold as he talks about photographing climate change. We talk to photographer John Weller, who spent the austral summer 2008 scuba diving under the ice in Antarctica. 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. Exploratorium staff Ron Hipschman and Robyn Higdon sum up the last five days of spacewalks, and show a couple of good-bye conferences with the shuttle astronauts. Learn about the successful replacement of the Power Control Unit (PCU) and listen as we talk with Mark Clampin, part of the team that developed the Advanced Camera for Surveys scheduled for installation tonight. A unique chance to watch the live progression of the making of a Hubble image! We'll select an image to follow over the course of the following webcasts, showing you the steps along the way as it goes from raw data to a full-color picture. And we'll talk with people who bring Hubble's fantastic images to the public. Part 2 of the previous program.
