Exploratorium Magazine

Electronic Astronomy

My article appears in "Exploring Space," the Spring issue of the Exploratorium Magazine.

I visit astronomer Mike Bolte at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope on Mauna Kea and end up getting the visit of a lifetime. I ride to the top of the telescope to add liquid nitrogen to the CCD! Then observing on a night with fantastic seeing.

That's the way the ball bounces

My article from the "Exploring Sports" magazine is reprinted online. Learn that balls bounce off the ground because the ground pushes them up!

See also the bouncing balls activities on the Exploratorium's baseball site.
