Ira has a tech trifecta on Science Friday tomorrow: earthquakes, influenza, and Mt St Helens. They’re my three favorite subjects — gloom, doom, and boom:
Scientists watching Mt St. Helens say seismic activity at the volcano has slowed down since last week, and that the danger of an imminent eruption has passed — at least for now. In this hour of Science Friday, we’ll get an update on the volcano and find out how scientists are monitoring it.
Plus, sorting through the data of the most monitored earthquake in history–the Parkfield quake, which shook parts of California last week. Will the data collected from the recent quake lead to better quake prediction?
And we’ll hear about the stocks of flu vaccine. Why is it so hard to produce adequate supplies of influenza vaccine?
