THE HORSESHOE CRAB - BLOOD BOUNTY
Largely unchanged for over 400 million years, the Horseshoe Crab is a living fossil featuring blue blood, which has provided an incredible advantage to science. Learn all about the importance of the Horseshoe Crab with Jake Vincent as he provides details on how this blue blood product is put to daily use all over the world!
DR. FRANCESCA TRONCHIN
PYRAMIDS SCHEMES: THE STONE COLD TRUTH
Nerd Nite alum Dr. Francesca Tronchin returns with more ancient myths to debunk! Dr. Tronchin will start things off with some basics about the pyramids of Giza: their construction, their function, and their historical and geographic contexts. Then things will get even more interesting as she dismantles some of the myths surrounding these massive Egyptian tombs, including gold capstones, slave labor and, yes, the alien question.
DR. NOLAN WILSON
THIS YEAR IN SCIENCE
It's like our usual This Month in Science, but for the whole year instead, and it'll be Dr. Door Guy reviewing the scientific achievements of 2021 while your host Hanna probably provides comments from the peanut gallery . . .
