Join the Exploratorium's very own Ken Finn as he demonstrates fun activities, mixing up science with items found around the house. Join Exploratorium scientist Paul Doherty as he illuminates the most primitive objects—comets, icy leftovers from the formation of our solar system over 4.6 billion years ago. La sonda espacial Rosetta de la Agencia Espacial Europea despertó de un profundo sueño este enero pasado en preparación para aterrizar en un cometa de nuestro sistema solar – la culminación de un viaje de 10 años por el espacio. Join us for the fourth event in the series, this time featuring Jem Finer, a UK-based artist, musician, and composer. Finer has worked in film, photography, installation, and experimental and popular music since studying computer science in the 1970s. Much of his work explores systems and processes playing out over extremes of time and space. Join us for a interview with Jem Finer, a UK-based artist, musician, and composer. Finer has worked in film, photography, installation, and experimental and popular music since studying computer science in the 1970s. Much of his work explores systems and processes playing out over extremes of time and space. Join Exploratorium staff scientist Ron Hipschman as we visit Dan Werthimer, Director of the SETI Research Center at UC Berkeley. SETI conducts experiments searching for electromagnetic signatures of intelligent extraterrestrial civilizations, spanning wavelengths from radio to visible light, over ten orders of magnitude in characteristic time scale. Immerse yourself in visual storytelling that extends beyond theater walls to expand the possibilities of cinema. Look for film installations flickering under glass, follow your nose to a "smell-o-vision" presentation by the Lost & Found Film Club, and get a feel for films projected onto fog by the Oddball Film Archives. Experiment with shadow puppets and early experiments in moving images, as well as wearable camera obscuras. With live performances by Kerry Laitala and the Overdub Club.
http://www.exploratorium.edu Cities are known to produce a lot of light pollution, making it a challenge for astronomy enthusiasts to view the heavens within city limits. For us in the SF Bay Area, these issues apply, however, exciting results can still be attained between sky gazing and learning about how we all fit into this big thing we call "space".
Urban Astronomer Paul Salazar, The Exploratorium's very own Adam Esposito and more demonstrate how to deal with the parameters and the unforgettable experiences that await with simple to no equipment, the right conditions, and some decent timing. Sound artists Shane A. Myrbeck and Emily Shisko elaborate on their thought process behind their interactive sound installation, Fathom: Self-Assembling Music. This art work was presented in the Exploratorium's Kanbar Forum in 2013 and into 2014. Developed in the early days of electronic instruments, the ondes Martenot, characterized by a fragile and intricate design, produces a wholly unique and deeply evocative sound that transfixes musicians and listeners alike.
