Neil Shubin - The Universe Within: Discovering the Common History of Rocks, Planets, and People

Tuesday, February 12, 2013 at 7:00 pm

In this dual focus on the present and the distant past, Shubin, a paleontologist at the University of Chicago and author of Your Inner Fish, combines geology, genetics, and cosmology to explain both why the world is as it is now, and how it came to be that way. Shubin cogently explains the Big Bang and traces the matter it dispersed as the elements became stars and planets, rocks and life.
