We are back for Season 2 of the Super Awesome Science Show!

It’s been a year unlike any other thanks to, COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) and the virus that causes this illness, SARS-CoV-2. We’ve received numerous questions over the course of the year and want to answer as many of them as possible.

And this week, we’re going into one of the most confusing and hotly debated topics of this pandemic: how does the virus spread in the air?

Our guest for the entire show is Steven Rogak. He is a mechanical engineering professor at the University of British Columbia. He is a world-leading expert on the morphology, transport properties and dynamics of aerosol nanoparticles, which happen to include viruses like SARS-CoV-2. If there is anyone who can guide us through the strange world of airborne spread, it’s him and trust me, you are in for a treat.
