Wednesday on Lake Effect: 2018 Astronomical Discoveries, 'The First Patient,' Bat Conservation

Wednesday on Lake Effect

We explore the world of science with a look back at some of our favorite conversations. First, our astronomy contributor Jean Creighton reviews a year of astronomical discoveries. Then, a documentary by Milwaukee filmmaker Chip Duncan, follows first year med students as they learn gross anatomy through dissecting human cadavers. Plus, scientist Merlin Tuttle discusses his love of bats and how his work helps change negative perceptions of these animals.
