The Space Shuttle Enterprise is finally open to the public at its new home at the Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum.
The birth of the Turing Machine and the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Mozilla's Firefox 4 beta reaches the release candidate stage, Microsoft will launch Internet Explorer 9 next week, and NASA space shuttle Discovery makes its final flight.
More people choose to end their lives at the Golden Gate Bridge than anywhere else in the world. "The Bridge" offers glimpses into the darkest and possibly most impenetrable corners of the human mind.
When planning San Francisco's new California Academy of Sciences building in Golden Gate Park, engineers ran across a few design challenges that demanded clever solutions. CNET News.com's Kara Tsuboi explains how they borrowed ideas from other areas of engineering--from roller coasters to submarines--to solve those problems.
It was live on TV. Seven good people died in a blink. My good friend Stefan Baiatu wrote the song in five minutes (music and lyrics). It was about the tragedy of the space shuttle Challenger. But what do you know - it happened again - seven angels... Columbia. History repeats itself - is this unavoidable?
Patrick Barnard, a geologist with the Santa Cruz branch of the United States Geological Survey, narrates this short video showing the placement and depth of sand dunes located beneath 300 feet of water in and around the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
We all watched NASA's final space shuttle launch this morning before heading into the studio, and by "we" I mean Wilson and me, because as usual, Jeff couldn't care less. Nevertheless, we're still excited about Atlantis and spend part of the first half of the show watching videos and talking about the official Atlantis fanfare written by Emmy-nominated composer Bear McCreary and produced by actor Seth Green!
The San Francisco museum's celebration of science and exploration gets under way this weekend with Dr. Megavolt.
Building the Academy of Sciences' new home in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park was understandably a challenge. With its undulating garden-topped roof, twin domes, and environmentally friendly features, this $484 million project is one of a kind. CNET News.com reporter Kara Tsuboi learns more about the "virtual building" program that took architect Renzo Piano's sketches and made them a reality.
