Hey all! Jen’s been abducted by aliens so I’m covering the quickies today. Be gentle with me! :)
- Rinderpest virus the second disease ever to be eradicated (thanks vaccines!)
- Sid the Science Kid gets vaccinated, to the chagrin of the anti-vaxxers. “Sid will be a great messenger as we continue to find new and creative ways to reach out to children, adults, and families about how to stay healthy during flu season.”
- Creationist lawsuit flops; University of California’s admission standards upheld. More details here.
- The SETI Institute Research Experience for Undergraduates have a musical message for us. Points for effort but I’m glad they have astronomy to fall back on! :) (from Tina)
Have a good day y’all!
