Welcome to the American Museum of Natural History on YouTube! Our video channel takes you behind the scenes of our exhibits, into our world-class collections, out to the field with researchers, and through scientific concepts that illuminate the natural world.
Shelf Life is a collection for curious minds—opening doors, pulling out drawers, and taking the lids off some of the incredible, rarely seen items in the American Museum of Natural History. Episodes roll out monthly: http://www.amnh.org/shelflife
Asteroids can be hazardous to life on Earth, but they also provide clues about the early solar system. Denton Ebel, curator in the Museum's Division of Physical Sciences, explains how asteroids formed and the varying degrees of destruction they cause when they fall to Earth.
On the first Wednesday of every month, this popular after-hours series brings together inquisitive minds for an informal evening of cocktails and conversation about cutting-edge science topics with experts from the field.
The SciCafe series is proudly sponsored by Judy and Josh Weston.
