How You Explained the Sun
Science Friday’s Science Club has been on a month-long exploration of the sun: what it is, how we see it, and its effects on our lives. Gardeners, artists, teachers, heliophysicists, and even the Secretary of Energy have all weighed in on what the sun means to them. Science Club founding members Ariel Zych and Charles Bergquist, along with astronomer Dean Regas of the Cincinnati Observatory, recap some of the highlights from this season’s Science Club session, and bring the solar celebration to a close.
Ariel Zych is Science Friday’s director of audience. She is a former teacher and scientist who spends her free time making food, watching arthropods, and being outside.
Dean Regas is outreach astronomer at the Cincinnati Observatory and co-host of the PBS program Star Gazers in Cincinnati, Ohio.
As Science Friday’s director and senior producer, Charles Bergquist channels the chaos of a live production studio into something sounding like a radio program. Favorite topics include planetary sciences, chemistry, materials, and shiny things with blinking lights.
