Cheer on the competitors in this zany science cook-off, where teachers compete before a live audience at the Exploratorium for the sought-after title, "Iron Science Teacher." This week's ingredients can be found in your breakfast! 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. Where do fireworks come from? Who invented them? What causes their beautiful colors, and how do the bursting shells create such different patterns? Join us for some real illumination, and learn the difference between a jerb and a lance. Join us for the fifth event in the series, this time featuring Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, an artist and multi-instrumentalist who works with voice to create spontaneous and ecstatic musical compositions. Lowe—who also performs under the moniker Lichens—uses effects boxes to loop guitars, percussion, and vocals to form a reverberating drone.
What is Community Radio? The DJs and station managers at KPOO, KUSF in Exile, Mutiny Radio and Radio Valencia give us some insight into community radio in the Bay Area, how it works and the challenges they face.
