LOST at the Science Museum

After spending 5 weeks on researching the "scientific" aspects of LOST, Ange and I (and the cute little blond is my daughter) thought it only fair to go on a hunt to see some if it for ourselves. It's quite amazing what we found.....



Well, to start, golashes for the Losties....we could smell the rain coming! And we all know what THAT means.



First, and most importantly, a Faraday cage. We actually got to see a huge demonstration on how they work. There was also a display on the properties and abilities of diamagnetic material. AWESOME! hehehe




In the background is a gigantor Van De Graff Generator. Also, there are Tesla Coils and lots of other "shocking" items. (Which apparently make kids think that parents should hand feed them grapes)



This is what electromagnetic energy does to your face!



And you thought it was giant hamsters....HA!



HAD to stop on the beach for a break and a few games. (Bet you didn't know the Dharma Shark could fly)





And to think....all this time Smokey has been coming out of my kid's nose.....how about that.



YAY! for Vortex Theory. JK
I was very excited about it though.



HEY! I think he stole our fish biscuits!!!

Looks like you all had a good time. Lots of hands on exhibits.

Isn't it nice when we LoCos get to meet IRL and have real friendships?

Maven- You KNOW we related everything to LOST. Actually, to the point where Erica was shaking her head at us. LOL!

No, to the point where she was drawing pictures of, "...this lost island that is on a show that her mom won't let her watch." Or so she told the waitress at one of the restaurants we went to hehehe.
