Exploratorium After Dark | Pier 15
Disruption! We’ve all heard the word bandied about in the context of new technology. But what are the technologies that truly disrupted our understanding of the world around us, with long-term effects?
Dig deep into the past to uncover the hidden histories of human-made objects with impacts so essential to our daily lives, we hardly stop to remember their value. Scientist and author Ainissa Ramirez will join us for a special talk on her new book The Alchemy of Us, which takes the long view of how technologies—clocks, photographic film, steel rails and more—have changed us.
