National Geographic Presentation - Going Viral

The Big Picture with Kal Penn — Going Viral Featuring LANL scientists Sara Del Valle (DSA), Reid Priedhorsky (HPC), Nicholas Generous (DSA) , and Kyle Hickmann (T)

Sara Del Valle and team will be presenting the National Geographic TV Mini-Series The Big Picture with Kal Penn – Going Viral. In this episode, Kal Penn goes “viral” to uncover what causes and drives pandemics around the world, and what can make them even more dangerous than you think. He will take the audience to a Chinese animal market where one of the most infamous pandemics of our age started. He will show how scientists are at the front lines fighting the most dangerous creatures in the world, the mosquito. Finally, he will show how a top-secret lab [LANL] is preparing us for the scariest “what if” situations of bioterrorism in the U.S.
