Everything Matters: Tales from the Periodic Table:  Oxygen: Ron Hipschman (Clip)
Running Time:
00:27:47
Recorded live at the Exploratorium 2015. Earth, water, air, fire: our world is ruled by oxygen, the third most abundant element in the universe. Originating inside of stars, oxygen is scarce on planets outside our own. It comprises roughly half the mass of Earths crust and a fifth of its atmosphere. Nonmetallic and highly reactive, oxygen is key to combustion and corrosion, and forms stable bonds with almost every element, notably hydrogen (H2O) and itself.

Miscellaneous:  Visible Spectres | Cinema Arts Installation by Kerry Laitala | 2015 (Clip)
Running Time:
00:02:23
Science, history, and art converge in this whimsical tribute to San Franciscos 1915 Worlds Fair, which is celebrating its centennial this year. Lost landscapes from the Fair (including the Exploratoriums former home, the Palace of Fine Arts) become the backdrop for spectral encounters. Are the spirits of fairgoers getting restless? Museum visitors who dared to enter the Black Box interacted with ethereal forces and became part of a world of ghostly apparitions that sprung to life. Just in time for Halloween, Visible Spectres took as its cue the illusion technique known as Peppers ghost, used in theaters, haunted houses, sideshows, and magic tricks. Do YOU see ghosts? Kerry Laitala is an award-winning moving-image artist who uses analog, digital, and hybrid forms to investigate the ways in which media influences culture. She considers this approach to making art as a type of media archeology. Laitalas work resides at the crossroads of science, history, and technology. Her uncanny approach to evolving systems of belief manifests through an array of media including films, videos, installations, photographic works, performances, and kinetic sculpture. She studied photography and film at the Massachusetts College of Art and received her Master in Film from the San Francisco Art Institute. Laitalas 2015 City Luminous series encompasses seven separate works (and counting), spanning the realms of installation, multi-projector performance, photography, and single-channel film, shown thus far at the Palace of Fine Arts, the San Francisco Art Institute, the California Historical Society, and in solo shows at Oddball Films and Shapeshifters Cinema. Elements of The City Luminous series have been funded by a Special Projects Grant from the Princess Grace Foundation, San Francisco Arts Commission Grant, Yerba Buena Benefit District grant, California Historical Society, and Maurice Kanbar.

Science in the City:  Hetch Hetchy Regional Water System (Clip)
Running Time:
00:14:00
The drinking water provided for San Francisco and many nearby communities is among the purest in the world. Located high in the Sierras, more than 200 miles away, Hetch Hetchy reservoir holds most of this water which is fed by springtime snowmelt via the Tuolumne River. The system for delivering that water is almost entirely gravity fed, requiring almost no fossil fuel consumption to move water from the mountains to the tap. Take an exclusive tour with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) as they lead us through this unique system and address the current drought and how to conserve water.

Solar Eclipse:  1998 Live from Aruba (Clip)
Running Time:
00:06:30
On February 26, 1998, a total solar eclipse darkened skies in a swath stretching from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic, across the Caribbean. From the island of Aruba, an Exploratorium team presented a live Webcast of this celestial event. At the time, Webcasting technology was in its infancy, and this first live Webcast ever of a solar eclipse broke existing records for the number of viewers. Watch the archived Webcast here, or just click on the images below for still photos of eclipse highlights.
