Aurora Borealis: Fire in the Sky

11:00 am; 1:00 pm

The aurora has always inspired people in the polar regions with awe. A journey departing from ancient myths and legends about the aurora, to scientific explorations of this natural spectacle. When the sun’s activity is increasing, the results are more intense and frequent northern lights. Even seasoned researchers never fail to be overwhelmed. (2012, 60 minutes)

Tower to the People:
Tesla’s Dream at Wardenclyffe Continues

12:00 pm; 3:00 pm

The larger-than-life hero of electricity’s early days, a rival to Thomas Edison who predicted not just the future of power but the invention of Wi-Fi, Nikola Tesla lived on Long Island. One of history’s most innovative minds, a reminder of the great age of scientific exploration when inventors, like artists, were solitary geniuses. (2015, 30 minutes)
