Life’s Rocky Start

 

This month we’ll take a look at a new possible explanation as to how life got it’s start on Earth. This is a video from Nova and features the geologist, Robert Hazen (one of my favorites!). Check out the description below:

 

Four and a half billion years ago, the young Earth was a hellish place—a seething chaos of meteorite impacts, volcanoes belching noxious gases, and lightning flashing through a thin, torrid atmosphere. Then, in a process that has puzzled scientists for decades, life emerged. But how? NOVA joins mineralogist Robert Hazen as he journeys around the globe. He advances a startling and counterintuitive idea—that the rocks beneath our feet were not only essential to jump-starting life, but that microbial life helped give birth to hundreds of minerals we know and depend on today. It's a theory of the co-evolution of Earth and life that is reshaping the grand-narrative of our planet’s story. 

 

So join us for this fun mind-bending evening!
