Check out this amazing footage taken from a quadcopter flying over the Exploratorium at their spectacular Pier 15 location on San Francisco's Embarcadero. Light Walk captures former Exploratorium artist and "natural philosopher" Bob Miller (1935-2007) leading a portion of his fabled walk, a blend of performance art and radical pedagogy that evolved into an Exploratorium institution. Developed over many years, Bob's walk was continually nourished by the observations, questions, and astonishment of visitors, teachers, and museum staff. What are salt ponds and why are they are being restored to their natural habitat? The South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project is the largest tidal wetland restoration project on the West Coast. When complete, the project will restore 15,100 acres of industrial salt ponds to a rich mosaic of tidal wetlands and other habitats. For more information go to http://www.southbayrestoration.org . Join us for a live chat with researchers aboard the Exploration Vessel Nautilus as they study an active volcano beneath the Caribbean Sea. We'll ask them how ocean exploration has changed with the introduction of high-bandwidth satellite communications that allow scientists on shore to join the expedition virtually. Explore distant realms of musical possibility with Resonance, an evening new music series at the Exploratorium. Contemporary musicians and sound artists will perform new works and discuss their ideas, techniques, and inspirations with radio host and pianist Sarah Cahill.
For more information go to http://www.exploratorium.edu/resonance Join us for a live chat with educators and scientists aboard the Exploration Vessel
Nautilus, which is studying an active volcano beneath the Caribbean Sea. Learn about
the excitement of deep-sea exploration, and find out whether the researchers have had
to dodge any underwater volcanic eruptions. Join us for a live chat with artist Lily Simonson aboard the Exploration Vessel Nautilus,
which is studying an active volcano beneath the Caribbean Sea. A painter and educator
from Los Angeles, Simonson is fascinated by the otherworldly animals of the deep
sea, especially those that live around the superheated waters gushing from cracks on
undersea volcanoes. She’ll tell us what it's like for an artist to collaborate with scientists
at sea and what strange invertebrates she hopes to document. Ever notice a brick-lined circle embedded into a street intersection? Keep an eye out and you'll see them throughout San Francisco. As part of the San Francisco Fire Department's Auxiliary Water Supply System, these brick circles indicate a cistern full of water. Join SFFD's Chief Ken Lombardi and Firefighter Hashim Anderson as they discuss the history and function of these cisterns, and demonstrate the drafting procedures used to access the water. Join us as Rosetta moves ever closer to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko’s nucleus to map potential sites for a November landing.
What would it take for humans to travel to and live on Mars—and who is daring enough to do it? In this episode, we explore the Mars One project, which is planning human settlement on the red planet, and hear from scientists at NASA's Ames Research Center about adjusting to the Martian environment. We also meet some brave Bay Area residents who are hoping to make the journey.
