Come be in your elements with Exploratorium host and scientific raconteur Ron Hipschman. Follow tales of intrigue and invention, join in dynamic demonstrations, and uncover fascinating connections between individual elements and our collective human experience. This week, learn about Earth’s rarest nonradioactive metal, rhodium, which keeps auto emissions in check and lends hardness and shine to fine jewelry. And check out the premiere of the new commissioned artwork Aperture Lucida, by Tristan Duke, and hear from him about the work and his art practice.
