Everything Matters: Tales from the Periodic Table:  Flourine: Ron Hipschman (Clip)
Running Time:
00:24:26
Recorded live at the Exploratorium in 2015. Furiously reactive, fluorine has a ferocious appetite for attracting electrons from other elements, and a fearsome habit of killing chemists. Due to the strength of its bonds, fluorine is found almost exclusively in compounds such as the colorful mineral fluorite. Early attempts to isolate the element were met with injury and death from explosions, corrosive burns, and poisonous fumes. In 1886, the treacherous gas was at last isolated by Henri Moissan, whose innovative processes are still in use today.

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 Earth’s 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.

Everything Matters: Tales from the Periodic Table:  Oxygen: Jennifer Frazier (Clip)
Running Time:
00:14:27
Recorded live at the Exploratorium in 2015. Earth’s oxygen is produced in equal measure by terrestrial vegetation and microscopic life in the sea. Explore the profound influence of phytoplankton on the atmosphere with Exploratorium scientist Jennifer Frazier, and learn how their populations are changing along with our climate. Investigate oxygen’s physical properties and follow the history of its discovery, as well as its more breathtaking applications.

Everything Matters: Tales from the Periodic Table:  Carbon: Ron Hipschman (Clip)
Running Time:
00:20:00
Emerging from inside of stars, carbon is the fourth most abundant element in the universe, and the basis for all life on Earth. Polyamorous, it loves to bond, exchanging four of its electrons with atoms of itself and other elements to create an endless variety of chemistry, from DNA chains to soccer-ball shaped fullerenes to atom-thick sheets of graphene. As diamond, carbon is hard and abrasive, as graphite, soft. When its bonds are broken, carbon readily moves from one partner to the next, cycling between oceans, atmosphere, flora, fauna, soil, rocks, and fossil deposits deep below ground.

Science of Sharing:  The Science of Sharing Forum with Hugh E. McDonald and Jennifer Jacquet (Clip)
Running Time:
00:42:09

Dr. Hugh McDonald is a Project Director, Senior Science Writer, and Associate Curator for the museum’s Osher West Gallery, which focuses on the interplay among science, society, and culture. He is a social psychologist and Principal Investigator of the Science of Sharing project.

Dr. Jennifer Jacquet, Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Studies at New York University, is an environmental social scientist. Much of her work focuses on transboundary cooperation issues such as overfishing, climate change, and wildlife preservation—challenges that depend in part on negotiation, communication, and trust, concepts at the heart of Science of Sharing.
