Colorado scientists are being honored this week. CO-LABS, representing 30 federally funded research centers in the state, is recognizing breakthroughs in climate resarch, disease control and other fields. The awards ceremony is Thursday in Boulder. Meanwhile, the federal labs where those discoveries were made are closed by the government shutdown. CSU professor William Farland is chair of CO-LABS. He tells CPR's Mike Lamp, because of the shutdown, a lot of important science is not getting done. [Photo: Will von Dauster, NOAA]
