Rosetta -- y su inminente aterrizaje en un cometa I Rosetta Mission Webcast I Exploratorium

337 views 6 days ago
La sonda espacial Rosetta de la Agencia Espacial Europea despertó de un profundo sueño este enero pasado en preparación para aterrizar en un cometa de nuestro sistema solar -- la culminación de un viaje de 10 años por el espacio. El primer encuentro de Rosetta con el cometa llamado 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko está planeado para agosto y el espeluznante aterrizaje para noviembre de este año. Rosetta es una misión que estudiará al cometa con una combinación de detectores y sensores que harán mediciones de las características fundamentales del cometa, desde la superficie hasta el núcleo. Los resultados nos permitirán entender el origen de nuestro sistema solar, particularmente de los planetas como la Tierra. En este webcast, compartiremos las noticias más recientes de Rosetta y explicaremos en qué consiste un cometa a través de una demostración interactiva donde vamos a... ¡recrear un cometa!

Science in the City I Online Video Series I Exploratorium Play

Urban environments like San Francisco are full of mysterious natural and human-made phenomena. Why are there so many one-footed pigeons? Where does the sewage go? Why is our "summer" in May and September? The Exploratorium is "taking it outside" to explore these and other questions in engineering, ecology, optics, waves, geology, architecture, weather, and more. Look for new episodes on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, at 3pm PST.

AFTER DARK at the Exploratorium Play

After Dark is an adult evening program at the Exploratorium on the first Thursday of every month that mixes cocktails, conversation, and adult-oriented programming in science and the arts. Each night showcases a different theme, which might include live performances, films, and new media, or feature cutting-edge technology and unexpected extravaganzas. Programs are playful, unique, and content-rich, addressing the science behind topics of adult interest—from gambling, alcohol, fashion, and sex to extreme sports and gaming. Not a theater, a cabaret, or a gallery, Exploratorium After Dark involves aspects of all three, with a mood unlike anything else in San Francisco.
