Air Brake Chair
Using pulleys you can lift your own weight 6 feet in the air with very little effort in an air brake chair. This exhibit has always been a favorite at the Discovery Center, as visitors line up for their turn to pull their own weight off of the ground. Once up in the air, there is always a little apprehension to just let go of the rope. However, this exhibit not only demonstrates how pulleys help you to lift heavy loads, but also how simple "wings" on a fly wheel help to slow your descent through resistance in the air. Without these wings, the chair would fall quickly back to the ground. With the wings pushing against the air the movement of the chair back down is slow and smooth.

Basque Whaling Danger and Daring on a Distant Shore
The chilling waters and rocky shores of North America's eastern bays hold long-buried secrets of the ancient Basque whaler, secrets waiting to be told. The story of these men who risked their lives in this bold pursuit will unfold as the Basque Museum and Cultural Center unveils its newest exhibit. Treasures from long ago have been discovered amid the splintered hulls of 16th century Basque whaling galleons in eastern Canada. Each one reveals clues about those who left their homes in the Basque Country to face the dark northern Atlantic, to cross its stormy seas, and to challenge the mightiest animals ever to inhabit the earth. A single cemetery in Red Bay, Labrador holds the remains of 140 Basque whalers and cabin boys, solemn testimony to the dangers these men and boys battled every day.
