Title: JFK Analysis     
Description: In this Science Update, from Science NetLinks, you'll hear atmospheric chemist Ken Rahn describe how he and a ballistics specialist have re-analyzed the data from two major forensic studies of the John F. Kennedy assassination. The analysis showed that despite apparent chemical differences, the tiny bullet fragments recovered from the president's limousine matched the larger bullets found in his body, making the chance that there were two shooters as little as a million to one. Science Updates are audio interviews with scientists and are accompanied by a set of questions as well as links to related Science NetLinks lessons and other related resources.
