NOAA's Okeanos Explorer:  Deep Sea Discoveries (Webcast)
Running Time:
00:27:04
In this program, we connect live with marine scientists at the Okeanos' Exploration Command Center in Seattle, learn about the mission's latest discoveries and see new video of some of the amazing animals they've encountered on their mission.

Look over the shoulders of ocean explorers as they map and send their ROV into the little-known and unknown regions of the deep sea. "Voyages of Discovery" connects the Exploratorium with NOAA's newest ship, the Okeanos Explorer, currently in the Pacific Ocean near Indonesia, as it carries out its first exploration voyage.

Driven:  Meet the Stars (Slideshow)
Running Time:
00:04:40
Astronomer Dr. Isabel Hawkins's journey to the stars began with two chance moments of enchantment with celestial bodies in her native Argentina. Inspired by the mystery of the sky, she went on to study physics and astronomy in California and then to work for 20 years as a research astronomer at UC Berkeley. Now retired from research and devoted to inciting a love of the stars and sky in young people, Dr. Hawkins reflects on her own initial moments of inspiration, on sharing her love of stars with others, and on how astronomy can, and should, remind us of our connection to one another, under a canopy of mystery.

Driven:  My New Wilderness (Slideshow)

The Wave Organ is a wave-activated sound sculpture located at the end of a jetty in the San Francisco Bay. It was created by artist Peter Richards and master stonemason George Gonzalez in 1986.

The installation is an unlikely sight: a collection of curbstones and cemetery stones that appear in the Bay like an ancient ruin or a strange dream. In this unusual place of discovery and contemplation, the musical phenomenon is only part of the point.

In this audio slideshow, Peter Richards, now a senior artist at the Exploratorium, shares his inspiration for creating this piece and explores its function as a theater in which many different kinds of human experiences unfold.
