Wikipedia Description: Marian Koshland Science Museum
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Marian Koshland Science Museum of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS) features exhibits that present modern science and scientific issues in an accessible way, geared for the general public. The museum, located in Washington, D.C., explores current scientific issues that are important for the nation’s and world’s public policy decisions, as presented in reports by the individual National Academies of the NAS.
Since it is sponsored by the NAS, the Marian Koshland Science Museum emphasizes participation of recognized scientific experts as well as the detailed information available in reports by the National Academies for both exhibit selection and development. Exhibit content is thoroughly vetted for scientific accuracy. A Museum Advisory Board acts on behalf of the National Academy of Sciences Council both in approving the exhibition topics and in reviewing and approving each exhibits overall design and content. Each of the museum’s exhibitions has as a basis, some substantial study or group of studies published by the National Academies. Expert scientists distill this work, ensuring scientific accuracy. The scientific committees and museum staff consult additional science experts on specific aspects of each exhibition. Finally, the exhibits are reviewed by focus groups from the general public to assure that they not only are scientifically correct, but also user friendly, enjoyable and effective in conveying the information correctly.
Origin of the museum:
Opened in April 2004, the Marian Koshland Science Museum is named for Marian Koshland, an immunologist and molecular biologist who conducted groundbreaking research in the behavior of antibodies. The museum has been developed as the result of a gift from her husband, Daniel Koshland, a molecular biologist specializing in the study of enzymes and bacteria.
Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
2004 photos: Equipment this year: I bought two Fujifilm S7000 digital cameras. While they produced excellent images, I found all of the retractable-lens Fuji models had a disturbing tendency to get dust inside the lens. Dark blurs would show up on the images and the camera had to be sent back to the shop in order to get it fixed. I returned one of the cameras when the blurs showed up in the first month. I found myself buying extended warranties on cameras.
Trips this year: (1) Margot and I went off to Scotland for a few days, my first time overseas. (2) I went to Hawaii on business (such a deal!) and extended it, spending a week in Hawaii and another in California. (3) I went to Tennessee to man a booth and extended it to go to my third Fan Fair country music festival.
Number of photos taken this year: 110,000.
