The low number of visitors at San Francisco's new Exploratorium is now costing employees their jobs

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, 80 positions are being eliminated. That's about a fifth of its staff.

Officials say crowds have been much smaller than what they projected when the science museum moved into its news digs on the Embarcadero in April.
