R. Sanders "Sandy" Williams, Exploratorium Board Member and President of the Gladstone
Institutes, hosted Exploratorium donors for a program called "Lunch with a Scientist". Joined by Gladstone Neuroscientist
and Stem Cell Expert Yadong Huang, and Senior Biologist Kristina Yu,
donors enjoyed a stimulating conversation on the topic of stem cell
research and applications for medical treatment of Alzheimer's
disease. In this episode, you'll get a get a glimpse into frontline efforts to restore healthy, self-sustaining populations of California’s native steelhead and salmon across their historic range. Catch one of the After Dark: Sexplorations highlights from February 6, 2014! Watch as Exploratorium Biologists, Karli Woodward and Caitlin Johnson demonstrate a live sea urchin fertilization. This buoy will be anchored near the Exploratorium for six months, monitoring the acid levels of the bay and transmitting data to NOAA via satellite. This research will give NOAA scientists a better understanding of how the rising acid levels in the ocean are affecting very diverse things such as fish behavior, larvae development, and even plankton. In 1997, the Exploratorium opened the Phyllis C. Wattis Webcast Studio on the museum floor, linking Internet users to live museum events and to live events at remote locations. In this video you can explore the early days of webcasting at the Exploratorium. Riotously colorful bacteria and mobile mosses meet carnivorous plants and rotting carcasses in this impressionistic journey through the Life Sciences area at the Exploratorium. Tardigrades are amazing creatures that can withstand the most extreme conditions on Earth, as well as the vacuum of space! This unique and charismatic animal has the ability to survive in a variety of situations. In today's program, Exploratorium scientist Karen Kalumuck will continue our programming about life in extreme environments as it relates to the search for 'habitability' on Mars. In today's program, Exploratorium scientists Paul Doherty and Karen Kalumuck will look at examples of life in extreme environments on Earth. As Mars is an extreme environment, the question remains-could it have supported any form of microbial life? Why is water, or evidence of water, so important to the Mars missions?
Join Exploratorium scientists Ron Hipschman and Karen Kalumuck as they examine water as one of the building blocks for life and what previous Mars missions have discovered about water on the red planet. 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.
