All About Oxygen

, | dlacord | Friday, December 11th, 2009 at 12:33 pm

We know all about the effects of living at more than a mile above sea level, but how much do we really know about the science of high altitude?

An exhibit at the Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum in Golden will educate us. “Thin Air: An Exhibit on Altitude and Oxygen” is showing now through May, 2010.

Visitors can explore oxygen systems, watch NOVA’s “Everest: The Death Zone,” hear high-altitude mountaineers discuss the use of oxygen on the mountain, learn what the Altitude Research Center is finding, explore a timeline of oxygen use in mountaineering, and discover how their bodies react to altitude.

The museum, in downtown Golden, is open Tuesdays through Sundays.
