Secrets of the Tokyo National Museum
Part 1: Conservation Science

Science View anchors at the Tokyo National Museum (Tomoko Kimura and Dr. Eiji Mizushima)
Their guide, Nobuyuki Kamba (Senior Researcher)

For the next 2 weeks, we'll be featuring the Tokyo National Museum. Leaving the studio, our anchors visit the museum's exhibition rooms and areas that visitors aren't normally allowed in - for example, the truck yard and a room where an ukiyo-e is being restored. There are treasures everywhere! Yet the focus is on "Conservation Science". What methods are used at the museum to preserve and exhibit the cultural properties so that they'll remain intact for the next 100 or 200 years? Their guide is Nobuyuki Kamba, who holds a doctor's degree in art and who supervises the remedial conservation work performed at the Tokyo National Museum.
In the J-Innovators section, Michelle visits a takumi who developed an innovative base isolation stand that protects cultural properties from earthquakes. In this Science View, we'll show you what goes on behind the scenes. Whether you frequent museums or not, this is a must-see!

3D Printers - The Best of Magic Boxes

The world's highest-resolution 3D printer

3D printers have been called "magic boxes" that could revolutionize manufacturing. We could be creating almost anything we want from anywhere in the world, with a click and digital data file download! They are paving the way for an age of one-off production that could replace the current mass production standard. And yet their technology is surprisingly simple. Could they even become a standard home device? We open the lid on these magic 3D boxes, to explore their possibilities and problems.
