Do Objectivity and Bias Have a Place in Science?

Is science always objective?

Dr. Dan Kuebler discusses the relationship between bias, culture, and science. In moments of discovery, how do scientists' egos and bias affect the conclusion? How do the values of the culture affect science?
 
Dr. Kuebler uses examples like the recent COVID-19 vaccine to explore how science is always refining itself with new knowledge that may modify the knowledge we had previously.
 
Finally, while science can tell us the facts, it can't necessarily tell us how to respond to those facts. Our response is always influenced by economic factors, psychological considerations, and culture in addition to what we know from science.
