We’re proud to announce that HMNS and some of the most loved natural history institutions in the world have partnered with Google to bring you a new online experience! This new online exhibition is available on g.co/naturalhistory and allows people to come face to face with Jurassic Giants and browse through the most spectacular collection of natural history available in one place!
The new collection uses state of the art technology to give a new virtual life to extinct animals and tell fascinating stories about our planet’s evolution over billions of years. Viewers come face-to-face with Jurassic giants in 360 degree videos, giving a better sense of how these animals lived, and what it might have felt like to be in their presence.
For this exhibition, HMNS and natural history institutions from 15 countries created over a hundred interactive stories, sharing a total of 300 000 photos, videos and other documents online in collaboration with Google. The latest innovations in tech help bring the magic of these legendary venues to life, and give everyone a chance to reconnect with our evolution story and our planet environment in all its richness.

Robot alert! The Carnegi Science Center (those crazy kids that brought us the Robot Hall of Fame) is developing an exhibit called Roboworld, that will “will emphasize three aspects of artificial robotic behavior: sensing, thinking and acting.” Sadly, “taking over the world” is not on the list of behaviors to be featured.
We love nature – but it doesn’t love us back. Humans are more harmful to coral reef than the fallout from an atomic bomb.
Houston, we just keep stacking up the honors. In addition to being named the country’s fattest city, it turns out that Harris County is number one for something else – carbon dioxide emissions.
