Science on Tap: Mars and influenza

science on tap capital region logo

The Science on Tap series of scientists-in-bars talks continues month with two events:

June 14: "Interplanetary Travel: do we have the heart for Mars?" at The Parting Glass
"Dr. Heidi DeBlock's Science on Tap talk in Albany was such a hit that she is taking it on the road to Saratoga Springs! Dr. DeBlock will discuss the physiological possibility of humans colonizing Mars as well as the health problems our astronauts face. If you are lucky, she may even talk about how astronauts use the bathroom on the International Space Station!" 7 pm

June 26: "Getting Centi-mental about the 1918 Spanish Influenza Pandemic" at the Albany Pump Station
"Please join us for a fascinating Science on Tap with Dr. Eric Yager as he discusses the 1918 Spanish flu, the impact of virus biology, and if history could repeat itself." 7 pm

The talks are free and open to the public, though they are age 21 and up.

Science on Tap is part of the larger CapSci effort to advance scientist understanding in the Capital Region and connect people with scientists.
