MIG: Baldemoro Olivera’s discovery of neurotoxins based on snails show real promise for pain management. Reinabelle Reyes’ confirmation of Einstein’s theory after looking at 70,000 galaxies is another great discovery.
@themindmuseum Ms. Garcia, with the recent feat of Voyager 1, can you explain what “interstellar space” is? #AskACurator
MIG:Interstellar space is the distance between our own solar system centered on our star, the sun, and the other stars.
@themindmuseum What collection object makes you laugh? add to the #museumlol project! http://t.co/aVYGiJCIhH #askacurator
MIG:The human story exhibit makes me laugh and think. Imagine a museum curated by insects looking at its own history.
@themindmuseum Do you have a favorite exhibit / gallery in the museum? #AskACuratorMIG: My favorite is Birthplace, the all-Filipino produced 3D film on the natural history of the planet that spans 4.6 billion years ago to tonight.
@themindmuseum re your electric table exhibit at Atom Gallery, kindly elaborate the relationship of magnetism to electricity? #AskACurator
MIG: Electricity and magnetism form a fundamental force called electromagnetism. It is the force that results when positive and negative charges interact. It is the reason for how things are the way they are in everyday life - like why you do not go through walls.
