Looking Up: Very, Very Far Away Things

Dean and Anna are joined by CEO of COSI and host of the new show from WOSU public media QED with Dr. B, Dr. Frederic Bertley. He shares how COSI (Center of Science and Industry) in Columbus has continued to inspire young minds throughout this past year of pandemic and how wanting more time on his electronic Colece Football handheld game as a child started his own journey into the world of science education.

They'll also discuss just how far we can observe into the cosmos with the naked eye and what that tells us about the immense size of our universe! And since we're talking COSI, some reminiscing on the field trips of their youth.
