Science Talks Cover Everything from Beetles to Binary Stars in Vernon

If you are in or around Vernon BC I would highly suggest joining these folks. It sounds like a fine program they have going there.

Dr. Peters is using data from the Hubble Space Telescope to look at the transfer of material between the stars, resulting in spectacular interactions. This lecture will look at the gorgeous bi-polar jet streams and splashes of hot mass transfer between the stars. The talk will be free for the public as sponsored by the American Astronomical Society, though donations are accepted.

The second event will be on April 2nd, where nano-materials scientist Dr. Mark MacLachlan from UBC will be talking about scientific inspiration from plants and animals. Dr. Lachlan focuses on unique characteristics in animals that inspire scientists to create similar materials that have improved strength, durability, and elasticity.
