Julie loves the glorious colors associated with the sound of a rooster crowing, while Mandi remembers phone numbers by their hues. Until John read a newspaper article about synesthesia in later life, he thought that everyone saw the days of the week as various shades of blue. In this program, people with synesthesia describe their experiences and perceptions, as well as the benefits and drawbacks of having a condition in which the barriers between the senses are dissolved.
This program is devoted to the senses that bring information of more distant events. The camera shows a reckless driver careening down a road—and then takes the viewer inside his eye, where the image of the potential crash site is pictured. The camera enters the ear, showing how the linked bones vibrate in response to a sound, and by using a computer graphic sequence, shows how the eye focuses on an image.
Offers a look at what kind of information satellites provide about our world. Satellite imagery has multiple uses: showing crops and pests, monitoring weather in all its forms, following forest fires and air pollutants, and more. Imagery notes climate changes, the ozone layer, and temperature of many things--all designed to predict and protect. These sensors present unusual windows to our world.
Dr. Michelle Thaller explains infrared light. Due to its longer wavelengths than those of visible light, infrared light is invisible to the human eye. However, special equipment exists that makes these wavelengths visible. Part of the "Ask an Astronomer" series.
Infrared light is all around, and the universe literally glows with it everywhere. However, humans are not able to see infrared light because it is just outside the limits of the human eye. With a simple injection, scientists gave mice the ability to perceive near-infrared light. What does this mean for humans? Part of the "Uno Dos of Trace" series.
