In this zany competition teachers have ten minutes to create a science activity from a special secret ingredient. This week: plastic water bottles. The two Mars Rovers are alive and well after surviving their second Martian winter. Come and see photos of discoveries they made during their third year on Mars, with Exploratorium Senior Scientist Paul Doherty.
Julia Moore and Evan Michelson of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars talk about nanotechnology products they’ve found for sale in a variety of stores. Should these products have some sort of special label? Journalist Philip Ball also weighs in on the controversy. Mary Miller chats with scientists at the South Pole about the nearly-completed telescope. The satellite connection to the pole deteriorated quickly, and we hope to repeat this program in the near future. Stay tuned for updates! Dr. Stephen H. Schneider joins us to discuss climate change. Dr. Schneider was honored in 1992 with a MacArthur Fellowship for his ability to integrate and interpret the results of global climate research through public lectures, seminars, classroom teaching, and research collaboration with colleagues. Join us as we talk with Robert Henson, author of The Rough Guide to Climate Change. Exploratorium Producer Mary Miller chats with Marika Holland, Climate Modeler for the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Dr. Holland co-authored a recent study projecting that the summer Arctic sea ice could completely disappear by 2040. Join Mary Miller in conversation with Mark Serreze, Senior Research Scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center, as they discuss recent dramatic decreases in Arctic sea ice and what that means for global climate stability. Exploratorium physicist Paul Doherty chats with Richard Levy, a geologist, and Ross Powell, who’s the co-director of the ANDRILL project. They are drilling beneath the Antarctic seafloor, and pulling up sediment cores. By looking at the layers of the past, they hope to help us predict our future. What do the kids want to know? Join Kirk Bell's fifth grade class (from Children's Day School in San Francisco)as they chat with Holly Troy in Antarctica. Mr. Troy has spent many seasons at McMurdo station working with scientists.
