Explore Evolution examines evolution at work on a number of species, from fungus to finches, from ants to whales, with humans and chimpanzees thrown in the mix. Explore Evolution was produced by the University of Nebraska and the Science Museum of Minnesota, with contributions from several experts in evolutionary science— including U-M’s own Philip Gingerich, whose work on fossil whales is featured.
Beautiful full-color images of microscopic cell structures combine delicate art with cutting-edge science. The images were selected from the BioArtography project of the U-M Center for Organogenesis (www.BioArtography.com) in support of the Museum of Natural History's winter term programming on brain science.
This exhibit traces the history of our evolving understanding of the Universe, from Einstein's discovery of space-time, through the development of theories explaining the Big Bang and cosmic expansion, up to cutting-edge research on gravity waves being conducted by U-M scientist Lydia Bieri. The exhibit includes interactives, video, beautiful NASA photographs, and artwork by local high school students.
