Invisibility, teleportation, mind readingthe stuff of science fiction, right? Yet much of todays technology was once considered impossible. Given enough time, couldnt incredible ideas like these also become commonplace? In this unique presentation, author and physicist Dr. Michio Kaku brings to life the science behind parallel universes and other fantastic phenomena. Hell discuss the role of nanotechnology in learning to simulate invisibility, explain why NASA envisions sending nanoships to the stars, and reveal how nanoscience may provide an escape from the death of the universe itself.
The Exploratorium's Ron Hipschman shows how a double disk with a string attached is a great way to study the physics of motion. Then Captain Yo and Doc Popular astound with amazing yo-yo tricks. Want to get off the grid but think its just too expensive? UCB's Dr. Jeff Grossman explains how nanotechnology may be used to make solar panels cheaper. Well also hear from philosopher Patrick Lin of the Nanoethics Group about ethical dilemmas that crop up when we try to improve our lives through nanotechnology. How do opera singers sing loud enough to be heard over an orchestra? Can an opera singer's voice really break a wine glass? What's the difference between a baritone and a soprano? Discover the answers to these questions—and more!—in this presentation for families. Join physicist and composer Dr. Brian Holmes and San Francisco Opera Center Director Sheri Greenawald to explore how the art and science of singing combine in opera. Cold anti-hydrogen atoms have been made, stored, and detected for the first time at ATHENA! We talked to the ATHENA team about this groundbreaking, historic event in particle physics and learned what's next. Join the Origins team as they travel to Antarctica. We sent Mary, Noel, Paul, and Julie to explore scientific wonders from McMurdo to the Pole. Learn all about the extreme science being conducted at the South Pole in a daily dispatch from Terra Australis Incognita! Today from the South Pole, Mary Miller speaks to Kathryn Rollins, who will tell us about the AMANDA Neutrino Dectector. In this webcast, we talk to Exploratorium staff particle physicist, Thomas Humphrey, about neutrinos What if we did contact another intelligent life form in the universe? What should we say? What traits best represent our humanity? Douglas Vakoch, the SETI Institutes Director of Interstellar Message Composition, is working with scientists, artists, linguists, composers, and others to imagine how to speak for our planet. For science fair competition taken to the third power, watch two veteran scientists as they battle head to head to determine who is the Iron Scientist. Home-town favorite, Exploratorium physicist, Dr. Dr. Paul Doherty will square off against heavy-weight contender, visiting Exploratorium Osher Fellow and Boston University astrophysicist Professor Kenneth Brecher. They have 5 minutes to teach their favorite activities, and then move on to the secret ingredients: marbles and panty hose
