What's New in the World

Volume Two: Issue One                       Last Updated: September 1996

100 years of Cars
By Mark Nichol
Of all the monikers one could attach to this century, one of the strongest candidates might be the Century of the Automobile.

In fact, the American automobile industry is commemorating the 100th anniversary of the car this year. Many people would count the automobile's life span from the introduction of Henry Ford's Model A in 1903, but 1996 marks the centennial of the Duryea Motor Wagon.

Audio and visual story by Amy Snyder, Ali Sant, and Jim Spadaccini.

About this month's Issue
If you are a regular visitor you may have noticed "What's New" has undergone some changes. It's been almost a year since the first issue was released and we decided it was time to act. "What's New" will continue to be published in the middle of every month and like the Exploratorium, "What's New" will concern itself with science, art, and human perception.

Let us know what you think about our new look and our new format. Thanks for stopping by,
