FROM THE BIG BANG TO BROADWAY
How Things Evolve
Lecture by Robert Hazen, Research Scientist, Carnegie Geophysical Laboratory and Professor of Earth Sciences, George Mason University
TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 6:00 PM
The concept of evolution by natural selection has long been a lightning rod for anti-science rhetoric. Such attacks are usually aimed at the biological realm, but Darwin’s opponents must now face evidence that complex evolving systems also drive phenomena beyond life science, such as the diversification of minerals on earth. Part of the Evolution Matters Lecture Series, supported by a generous gift from Drs. Herman and Joan Suit.Free and open to the public. Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street.
