SCIENCE CAFÉCome to a New Mexico PBS Science Café! A clip from an episode of NOVA scienceNOW, Nature or a comparable program will be screened. An expert on the topic will attend to answer questions & have an open discussion with the audience.
December 2013 Science Café
In the fall of 2001, several letters containing bacillus anthracis, the spores that cause the disease anthrax were mailed to several news media offices and to two U.S. Senators. Five people were killed and another 17 were infected. Were the anthrax spores used in the 2001 attacks specially engineered to better disperse through the air?
Come to the December New Mexico PBS Science Café and watch a segment of NOVA and then join in a discussion with experts from Sandia National Laboratories. Scientists at Sandia peered closely at the spores with electron microscopes and then reported their findings to the FBI. Once sworn to secrecy, they will discuss their findings of more than 200 samples examined over the span of seven years.
