Science Talks

Why on Earth, go to Space, presented by Dr. Molly Mulligan of Space Commerce Matters.
The International Space Station (ISS), has been continuously inhabited by astronauts for over 20 years. What do the astronauts on the ISS do all day? They exercise a lot! They do a lot of science - both to help us get to the Moon and Mars, but also to benefit people on Earth. From 3D printers to pharmaceutical research to studying shower heads, Astronauts are working on things to help improve our everyday lives. Recently, they also got to start having a little fun by working on photoshoots of products for advertisements for major companies!

China and Africa 
As Chinese President Xi Jinping’s centerpiece “Belt and Road initiative” continues to expand Chinese power, the response to the spread of Covid-19, as well as the African government’s growing debt to China, has seen pushback. What are some of the growing economic and political issues between China and Africa?

Science Talks

Bats of New York: Their Darkest Hour, presented by Alan Hicks. Although there have been bat researchers in New York State since the 1930’s, the first serious effort to monitor their populations began in the late 1970's. All trends for all species were positive, until that snow covered day in March of 2007 when the DEC survey crew reached the entrance of Hailes Cave in Thatcher Park. Although they did not know it as they turned on their helmet lights, they were about to be the first witnesses to what may be the largest, and most rapid, die-off of wild mammals ever recorded. Join Alan Hicks, retire specialist for DEC for the telling of the ongoing story, and for the lessons it teaches us.

The Two Koreas 
The Korean Peninsula is facing a defining era. Attempts by South Korean President Moon Jae-in and U.S. President Trump to repair the rift between North and South have lost any momentum as Pyongyang continues to test long-range missiles. As the rift between the U.S. and China grows, South Korea may end up in the middle of the two superpowers. What does the future hold for the U.S. relationship with the ROK?

The Covid-19 pandemic has thrust the World Health Organization (WHO) into the limelight. The response to the early stages of the pandemic left many experts wanting more from the WHO. What is the WHO’s role in responding to international pandemics? What can be done to improve the WHO’s response to future global health crises?

The End of Globalization? 
During the United States election season, the merits and drawbacks of globalization were again debated by the presidential candidates. With the passing of the Brexit vote and Trump’s America First doctrine, protectionist policies have become more prevalent, challenging globalization.  How will the United States and the world be affected by future trade policies? Is globalization really at an end, or in need of a refresh?
