Roughly 1,600 people attended the Science Friday radio show at the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts last weekend, and soon the whole world can hear a recording of the show.
UC Davis scientists are featured in the episode titled “Life Without Water,” to be presented on Capital Public Radio (90.5 FM) from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 9 to 11 p.m. this Friday (Sept. 30). Ira Flatow’s show also plays on more than 375 other National Public Radio-affiliated stations.
The show, recorded Sept. 24, included:
- Tessa Hill, associate professor, discussing ocean acidification and oyster shells, here
- Research scientist Oliver Kreylos and graduate student Jeanette Newmiller, presenting a show-and-tell with their Augmented Reality Sandbox
- Professor Emeritus John Crowe, describing the connection between blood platelets and tiny, dehydrated bugs that come back to life
- Forest ecologist Christina Restaino, describing how drought, climate change and bark beetles combine forces to kill trees
- The Martian author Andy Weir, a Davis native, pitting journalists against UC Davis grad students Ann Willis and Brad Arnold in a water quiz show.
