11:00 AM - 12:20 PM The Shadow of the Black Hole
FLEX # 114
In this workshop, I will talk about the mysterious black holes, an esoteric scientific idea that has so strongly captured the public imagination and became deeply rooted into pop culture. I will explain how astronomers are so sure that black holes are real, even if we cannot observe them directly, and tackle common misconceptions about them. Lastly, I will talk about how a large international collaboration of astronomers succeeded in observing what happens just outside the “event horizon” of a black hole, thanks to an array made of individual telescopes working together as a single Earth sized telescope. This discovery is a powerful metaphor of the fact that any difficulty can be overcome if people work together to reach their common goal.
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM Ask a Butte Biologist! COVID-19 Vaccines - Part 2
FLEX # 111.2
In part I of this presentation, the Butte College Biology faculty will introduce the replication cycle of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 disease, and explain how vaccines work to protect against disease. In part II, we will share up to date information on the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines, the resources we use to stay current, and answer questions about the biology behind the vaccines. If you already attended the spring 2021 presentation or watched the recording, we recommend you only attend part II.
