12/31/15 Show – Brian Kraus (sub) covers the best music and science of 2015

For this week’s show, Brian Kraus subs in to do a New Years’ special of These Vibes Are Too Cosmic. He highlights some of the best science and music of this last year. He began in our solar system with an overview of successful space flights of 2015, from the New Horizons Pluto mission to Dawn. Then he covered developments in materials science, first explaining superconductors, then the new super-hard phases of carbon. Finally, he hits health science and medicine with the successes combating the Ebola virus, even as we learn more about the disease’s prolonged effects on humans.
