El Exploratorium presentar una serie extensa de webcasts y programas relacionados a la misin de la NASA llamada Mars Science Laboratory o el laboratorio de ciencia del planeta Marte. Luego de un viaje espacial de 8 meses, el flamante rastreador de Marte, el astromvil Curiosidad, aterrizara en la superficie marciana y comenzar su investigacin y bsqueda de lugares que puedan haber albergado, o todava alberguen, alguna forma de vida orgnica.
Nuestros cientficos y otros expertos estarn atentos a los descubrimientos de Curiosidad y compartirn con Ustedes las mas recientes noticias e imgenes de Marte. Mechanical Engineer Armen Toorian explains that the wheel tracks of the Mars rover Curiosity are used to determine how far the rover has travelled on the red planet. Lead Curiosity Driver Matt Heverly and Research Scientist Bethany Ehlmann elaborate on the unusual working conditions involved with a Mars rover expedition. The Exploratorium is more than a science museum. It is the global leader in informal learning, having spawned 1000 participatory science centers around the world. An estimated 180 million people play with our creations in museums around the globe and online. The Exploratorium is made up of scientists, artists, teachers and tinkerers. It is a public laboratory where visitors are encouraged to ask questions, experiment, and ultimately see the world a little differently. Engineers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) explain how they simulate martian conditions and conduct tests with model rovers to prepare the Curiosity rover for its journey to Mars and its work on the red planet. Join the Exploratorium crew on our trip to NASAs Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) in
Pasadena, California, to learn more about the Mars Science Laboratory mission
and the Curiosity rover. On the cliffs above San Francisco's Ocean Beach perches a landmark observatorya giant camera obscura. Step inside with Robert Tacchetto and see how this centuries-old technology creates enchanting images of the outside world.
A glimpse of the full-scale model of the Mars rover, Curiosity. On display at the Exploratorium from August 1st to September 16, 2012. This model is on loan from JPL, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and there are only two on loan in the United States! Remember those pneumatic tubes at the drive-up bank? Finessed by modern engineering, this technology is alive and well at Stanford Hospital, where pressurized tubes deliver critical payloadsfrom medications and specimens to blood for transfusions.
Watch the beginning of Venuss transit across the disk of the sun, one of the rarest astronomical events.
