    8:00 pm on UEN-TV 9.1
    Join us as we go inside Carolina State University’s insect museum and see why these specimens are so valuable. Syntactic foam is strong and buoyant material commonly used in the manufacturing of submarines. Now, a team of researchers have developed a method of 3D printing components of syntactic foam that could take submarines to greater depths. We take a look at the next generation of space telescopes with Zolt Levay of the Space Telescope Science Institute. And we see how computer simulations are helping engineers identify buildings that are at risk of collapsing during an earthquake.

    We visit the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio where they are pioneering research in human performance. Science reporter, Dave Mosher, discusses how life on Mars is a possibility. We travel to the American Museum of Natural History where a group of high school girls are participating in a program called The Brown Scholars, which focuses on the intersection of computer and natural sciences. And we take a look at NASA's Eclipse Ballooning Project, which invites students across the country to conduct high altitude balloon flights that captured images of the American solar eclipse.

    Bacteria and viruses hitch a ride inside droplets of all kinds-sneezes, raindrops, and toilet splatter. We join an applied mathematician as she records and measures where these types of drops disperse in order to better understand how diseases spread. Psychology professor, Dale Cohen, at the University of North Carolina Wilmington is looking for the answers as to how people make moral decisions. And tuberculosis is the deadliest infectious disease and one of the top ten causes of death in the world. Take a look as scientists in Texas are working towards a tuberculosis vaccine and hopefully, someday, a cure.
