Join us as we talk turkey with food expert and author Harold McGee. Why does a turkey continue to cook after it is out of the oven? How can you be sure to thoroughly cook the dark meat without drying out the white meat? Is stuffing really a good idea? How do you make the skin golden? Cold anti-hydrogen atoms have been made, stored, and detected for the first time at ATHENA! We talked to the ATHENA team about this groundbreaking, historic event in particle physics and learned what's next. What is visual literacy--and who is literate? Join guest lecturer James Elkins in an evening of commentary on the many ways we "read" the visual world and assign meaning to what we see. In preparation for the 2004 landing of the Mars Exploration Rovers, NASA engineers and scientists tested their remote operation procedures using a rover called FIDO (field integrated design & operations rover). Our remote team traveled to the desert test site to see what they learned in the desert and what they hoped to learn on Mars. Join us as NASA releases the first images from the Hubble Telescope's new camera, NICMOS (the Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer). We'll discuss the significance and beauty of these pictures of our galaxy with the NICMOS' Lead Scientist, Keith Noll. Eames Demetrios, grandson of Charles Eames, has been director of the Eames office since 1993. Author, lecturer, multimedia designer, and filmmaker, his most recent book, An Eames Primer, is an intimate and informative look at the philosophy and spirit behind the work of Charles and Ray Eames. Founding Dean of the Architecture Program at California College of Arts and Crafts (CCAC), David Meckel began his career in the Eames Office in the 1970's. Focusing on the day to day experiences of working with Charles and Ray Eames, David will portray a day in the life of the office with the images, people, and idiosyncratic pleasures that made up the rich and dynamic environment that served as the laboratory for these two great designers. The Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer (NICMOS) will be brought back to life with the installation of the new experimental NICMOS cryo-cooler. The cryo-cooler updates the technology from that of an icebox to a modern refrigerator. We also talk to Keith Noll, head if the Hubble Heritage Project, which is responsible for bringing us those stunning pictures from deep space. The Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) was successfully installed. In preparation for the installation of the NICMOS Cooling System tomorrow, the astronauts also installed the Electronics Support Module. We also talk with Massimo Stiavelli, a scientist at the Space Telescope Science Institute about his involvement with the ACS and the future Wide Field Planetary Camera 3 (WFPC3) scheduled to be installed during the next servicing mission in 2004. Learn about the successful replacement of the Power Control Unit (PCU) and listen as we talk with Mark Clampin, part of the team that developed the Advanced Camera for Surveys scheduled for installation tonight.
