Everything Matters: Tales from the Periodic Table:  Beryllium: Ron Hipschman (Clip)
Running Time:
00:25:00
Behold beryllium, an exceptionally light, strong metal that is both prized and poisonous. Found in minerals such as emeralds and other forms of beryl, beryllium is highly conductive to heat and electricity, nonmagnetic, capable of great elasticity, and impervious to a wide range of temperatures, making it a favored material for aerospace projects such as space shuttles and satellites. In this video you will discover the element’s ancient and atomic histories with host Ron Hipschman!

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 Agency’s Rosetta mission deployed its lander, Philae, to the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko on November 12. 2014. Philae’s landing site, currently known as Site J, is located on the smaller of the comet’s 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/Churyumov–Gerasimenko 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!
