1.5 Million Watch Whales and Dolphins Play

News posts

In early January, the Museum posted a Science Bulletin showing humpback whales and bottlenose dolphins apparently at play in the wild. Off the coast of Hawaii, whales repeatedly lifted dolphins from the ocean and let them slide down their heads back into the water. If you haven’t already, watch the viral video below, which recently reached 1.5 million views on YouTube.

 

Science Bulletins is a production of the National Center for Science Literacy, Education, and Technology (NCSLET), part of the Department of Education at the Museum. Click here to learn more.

Museum’s Earth Bulletin Documents

News posts

In the wake of the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti last year, a group of U.S. scientists flew to Port-au-Prince to complete the first technical survey of the city’s geology. A film crew from Science Bulletins, the Museum’s innovative online and exhibition program, joined them to document the fieldwork, producing an Earth Bulletin now on view in the David S. and Ruth L. Gottesman Hall of Planet Earth and online on the Museum’s website.

“The earthquake in Haiti was such a momentous event that we felt we had to talk about the science behind it,” says Edmond Mathez, curator in the Museum’s Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences and the curator for Earth Bulletins.
