This event has ended.

Hot food and challenging jobs enhance our busy everyday lives. Yet the expansion of such a fulfilling lifestyle creates various problems such as the depletion of resources, an energy crisis, and global warming. Now, with the world's population at over 6.5 billion and growing, can future generations survive?

Miraikan presents an experience-based "survival training program" exploring the frontiers of science as a human survival tool and will consider the 5 themes of energy, food, living environment, tools, and communication. In addition, topics such as nuclear fusion, genetically modified food, industrial plant factory/agriculture innovations, new information technology infrastructures, nanotechnology and space science will also be included along with the latest data, images, and actual items. Rounding out this special exhibition will be our interpreters and volunteers armed with expert knowledge to provide a learning environment encouraging dialogue and understandable explanations.

View your future environment today through the eyes of cutting edge-science, examine science's influence and gain a new perspective on the inherent problems and potential solutions you will face in "modern life."

「65億人のサバイバル — 先端科学と、生きていく」展

昨年10月末から約3カ月間、お台場・日本科学未来館にて展覧会「65億人のサバイバル」が開催された。現在65億人が住むといわれる地球上で、このさきの未来を最新テクノロジーを駆使しながら生き抜く術を展示を通して学ぶというもの。

今を知り、未来をディスカッションする知的刺激空間:日本科学未来館の展示

東京お台場にある日本科学未来館を訪ねたのは実は今回がはじめてだった。私は根っからの視覚・感覚派なので、「科学」という言葉になんだか堅苦しそうで難しそうでホコリっぽそうで、、というイメージが拭えず、なんとなく敬遠していたという理由もある。しかし今回の訪問でこの私のステレオタイプは完全に打ち砕かれた。
