Science In The Headlines: 2019’s Discoveries, Disappointments, And Downright Weirdness

Dec 18, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$15

2020 is almost here—but before we bid this year adieu, let’s celebrate all the wonderful, worrisome, and weird science news from 2019!

Remember when we saw the first image of a black hole? What about the increase in youth-led climate change protests? Or the rise of new illnesses linked to vaping? Ira will take the stage with three science reporters to reflect on our favorite discoveries, the biggest news from this year in science, and the stories you might have missed.

After we roundup the standout news from this year, three storytellers will give us a peek behind the curtain of a notable story they reported in 2019, including the untold and surprising facts that may not have made it to their final draft.

This event will be recorded for broadcast on the Science Friday radio show, as well as a special extra episode in our podcast. Subscribe now to get these stories in your feed!
