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.

Rosetta Mission:  Philae has Landed! (Webcast)
Running Time:
00:30:00
Join us for a live webcast with senior scientist Paul Doherty to discuss breaking news about the Rosetta Mission! The European Space Agencys Rosetta mission deployed its lander, Philae, to the surface of Comet 67P/ChuryumovGerasimenko on November 12. 2014. Philaes landing site, currently known as Site J, is located on the smaller of the comets two lobes, with a backup site on the larger lobe. The sites were selected just six weeks after Rosetta arrived at the comet on August 6, following its 10-year journey through the Solar System.

Rosetta Mission:  Preparing for Landing (Clip)
Running Time:
00:30:00
The race to find Philae's landing site could only begin once Rosetta arrived at comet, 67P/ChuryumovGerasimenko on August 6th, when the comet was seen close-up for the first time. Since then, the spacecraft has moved to within 30 km of the comet, affording more detailed scientific measurements of the candidate sites. In parallel, the operations and flight dynamics teams have been exploring options for delivering the lander to all five candidate landing sites. Join Exploratorium Senior Scientist, Isabel Hawkins for a live webcast detailing the amazing stages of the Rosetta Mission!
