The American Museum of Natural History presents Science Bulletins, an innovative online and exhibition program that offers the public a window into the excitement of scientific discovery.
Science Bulletins is a video program that brings you the latest developments in the fields of astrophysics, Earth science, biodiversity and human biology and evolution through documentary feature stories about scientists in the field and regular brief research updates using scientific visualizations and imagery. In the exhibition halls of the American Museum of Natural History and other museums and science centers throughout the world, Science Bulletins presents Astro, Earth, Human, and Bio Bulletins as updating streams of high-definition video content and interactive media. On this Web site, Science Bulletins presents current videos and provides an archive of past stories, all with resource links, as well as educator resources and a guide for educators interested in using Science Bulletins in the classroom.
A Strong Scientific Foundation
All Science Bulletins content is produced through the collaboration of in-house writers, producers, and designers with the curatorial and scientific staff of the American Museum of Natural History. With its research staff of more than 200 scientists, and a history of original scientific research going back more than 130 years, the Museum partners with institutions worldwide to present the current state of scientific understanding. Primary among these are NASA and NOAA, which provide significant educational and programming support to Science Bulletins.
The Science Bulletins
Astro presents news of the observable Universe with feature stories, in-depth video documentaries about developments in astronomy and astrophysics, and regular Snapshots, recent images of stars, galaxies, and other cosmic subjects from observatories around the world and in space.
Earth delves into our planet's secrets, uncovering the dynamic systems that make Earth habitable. Feature stories illustrate how scientists decipher Earth's geology and climate, and Snapshots report biweekly earthquake and volcanic activity that demonstrate the motion of Earth's tectonic plates. Seasonally updated data visualizations provide global views of our dynamic planet.
Bio brings you the latest in biodiversity research and conservation with Feature stories about scientists at work around the globe, and regular Snapshots of Earth from above that highlight natural ecosystems and the human footprint on the landscape.
Human explores the science of our species, covering fossil and genetic research on human evolution as well as studies on human health and neuroscience. Feature stories focus on key scientific questions about the past, present, and future of Homo sapiens. Biweekly news stories relate the latest findings with real scientific models and data, medical imaging, field photographs, and satellite images.
