Come join us to find out how (and quite frankly why) a human being runs 100 miles in under 30 hours (or even under 24 hours) without sleep or much rest? Surprisingly, it's not as difficult as it sounds if you understand the science (and art) behind this seemingly crazy sport. This SciPop talk presented by Angela Hodge, Department of Mathematics, University of Nebraska Omaha, on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. in the Adele Hall Learning Commons (formerly Love Library North 1st Floor), at 13th and R Streets in Lincoln, NE. Popcorn will be served. The talk is free and open to the public.
The SciPop talk series combines science and popular culture and the spring series will mark the third year of these popular talks. The UNL Libraries provide an online list of books and other resources for every talk, which can be found here: http://unl.libguides.com/scipoptalks
The SciPop talk series builds on the science café model and is co-organized and sponsored by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) Chemistry Department, Doane College, and the UNL University Libraries. Speakers give interactive thirty-minute talks and then take questions. All talks are open to the general public. Over 1,500 individuals have attended a SciPop talk in person, and there have been over 550 unique views of the UNL SciPop Talks six video collection on YouTube. This speaker series has highlighted over 680 books, videos, and games in the UNL Libraries’ collection.
