Well, first “a scientist walks into a bar...,” but it's no joke because that scientist will inspire people just like you at Science Pub RVA events - discussions, maybe over a few brews - certainly among curious people, folks who'd like to know about “real” science–the kind that’s all around us all the time–stuff that will amaze you and where there’s no such thing as a dumb question.

Mountain bikes are great, but would one work on the face of the Moon? NASA engineers and VCU’s School of Engineering students know better. The Moon’s rock-and-roll face is not a mountain trail. Special engineering skills are needed to design and build a vehicle humans can ride across the moon’s alien environment.
Congratulations to Team Sparky 384 from Henrico County, who joined teams from Martinsville, Va. and Raleigh, N.C. to become top winners in the 2012 FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Virginia Regional, a “varsity sport for the mind.”
