7 p.m. – Lecture (Steigerwald Hall, Saints Center)

8 p.m. – Night Sky Viewing (Observatory – weather permitting)

Guest speaker Dr. Annie Rowe, the University of Cincinnati will discuss our new understanding of how microbes “make a living” using different sources of energy. The majority of life forms on our planet are microbes that colonize the Earth’s subsurface. These systems have not seen carbon fixed by photosynthesis (i.e., plants) for millions of years, and by all accounts should not be able to survive in these environments. Dr. Rowe will also discuss analog environments, specifically serpentinizing ecosystems, that are fueled by geologic energy (water rock interactions that generate hydrogen) that are candidates for places where life may have arisen on our planet and where life may have existed (Mars) or currently exists (Europa and Enceladus) elsewhere in our solar system.

This event is free, open to the public, and appropriate for all ages. No reservations are required.
