Public Outreach in October: Astrobiology Soap Box Series at the MIT Museum


We are very pleased to announce an interactive public discussion series at the MIT Museum every Tuesday evening this October, showcasing research under the Foundations of Complex Life umbrella. The Soap Box series—in which participants of all backgrounds converse with researchers in a café-style setting—is entitled “How to Make Life and Influence Planets.” Topics will span from the origins of life on Earth to the search for life beyond Earth. Six of the eight speakers are Foundations of Complex Life team members: Greg Fournier, Francis Macdonald, David Gold, David Johnston, Ann Pearson, and Giulio Mariotti.

The MIT Museum has more information about the Soap Box series on their website. The discussions will be video recorded and will be archived on MIT World, accessible here. Many thanks to the EAPS department at MIT for supporting this series, and to the Public Programs staff at the MIT Museum for making this series possible. Please join us Tuesdays in October!
