Harvard Museum of Natural History
Thursday, December 10, 5:00 - 8:00 PM
Free admission from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. Check out the newly restored Great Mammal Hall and visit the Evolution and Language of Color exhibitions.
Free public lecture at 6:00 pm by Andrew Knoll, Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard and a member of NASA's Mars Exploration Rover science team. He hasn’t actually been to Mars, but he has spent a lot of time examining its rocks, including four-billion-year-old salt deposits investigated by the rovers Spirit and Opportunity. Knoll will reflect on six years of NASA Mars Rover exploration; what the evidence tells us about the history of water and its implication for life on the ancient surface of the Red Planet. Intended audience is teens and older. Free and open to the public in the Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street.
