Creatures of Light: Nature's Bioluminescence

Creatures of Light: Nature's Bioluminescence

What goes into the making of an exhibition about organisms that glow? Curator John Sparks, marine biologist David Gruber, and firefly expert Marc Branham discuss what's most surprising about bioluminescence, what it takes to produce a scientifically accurate model of a bioluminescent animal, and how to re-create the experience of scuba diving on a magnificent coral wall.
