Exploratorium After Dark | Pier 15

Everyone knows that Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation puts on a good show, but what else can it do? This 60-year-old technology started out as “a solution looking for a problem,” but it continues to enable scientific breakthroughs in communication, medicine, and observations of events light-years away. Focus on the history of LASERs along with live demonstrations of their potential and power to wow. Plus, aim your LASER focus on flavor at our food-and-science program, Pairings.
