Running Time:
00:03:16
In January and February of 2011, the first of the large 72" in diameter piles were driven 160 feet in to the sea floor at Piers 15 and 17 in San Francisco, the new home of the Exploratorium. These new piles were installed between the two piers and along the south apron of Pier 15. In early March, the steel casings were filled with concrete.

Miscellaneous:  Chaotic Pendulum (Clip)
Running Time:
00:05:00
A short video created about an iconic exhibit at the Exploratorium, Ned Kahn's Chaotic Pendulum. An apparently simple set of pendulums is given an initial twist. Intuition says that the resulting motion of this simple system should be, if not simple, at least predictable. Intuition doesn't work with this device though, and its motion is an extremely complicated, and somewhat whimsical, twisting and turning that defies the predictive powers of physics.
