Title: Gross Science: How Far Do Sneezes and Vomit Travel?

Learn how far coughs, sneezes, and vomit travel, in this episode of Gross Science from NOVA. Scientists can use technology to track the liquids that fly out of noses and mouths and study how far germs can travel. Researchers at MIT used high-speed cameras to reveal that the droplets in a cough or sneeze travel in an invisible gas cloud, which can carry germs much farther than people previously thought.

This alignment results from the ALEX Health/PE COS Resource Alignment Summit.
