Opening of sciencetival 2010
Sciencetival 2010 was opened by the mayor of Ljubljana, Zoran Janković.
The opening was followed by a science show Smalllargeology, as performed by Hiša eksperimentov.
You can see a short clip from the show below.
Stanley Micklavzina from the University of Oregon shows us a couple of very interesting experiments.
Video can say more than a hundred words, so take a look at the clip below.
Preparations for the SPECTACLE
Chris Chiaverina from the USA conducts two experiments, which demonstrate that all things prefer to stand still.
Opening of the SPECTACLE
This year the spectacle was opened by dr. Miha Kos and dr. Jana Kolar. Afterwards they crossed the non-newtonian fluid first each on their own and then together as well.

Science S P E C T A C L E
This year the SPECTACLE was extremely interesting. In the following clips you can see a couple of the most fascinating moments.
The oldest person to cross the non-newtonian liquid was 82 years old.
Mr. Alan Markelson from the United states of America was the North american ferrari racing champion at the end of the 50's. Here he proves that he can master the non-newtonian fluid just as well as his ferrari.

Laser data transfer
Stanley Micklavzina from the University of Oregon gives a demonstration of data transfer by use of a laser beam at the 50th anniversary of the invention of the laser. We also get to hear which modern inventions depend on the laser.
