Annual Allman Family Lecture: Light of the Stars: Alien Worlds and our Fate on Earth

Event Date: October 17
Location: Dallas Hall 306
Time: 5:00 Reception and 5:30 p.m. Lecture

Adam Frank asks the question of sustainability from the Astrobiological Perspective with a discussion of what we’ve learned about planets, climate, and life from explorations of the Earth, other solar system worlds, and the galaxy. He’ll explore why it is unlikely that we’re the first civilization in cosmic history and why climate change will likely occur on any planet that evolves a technological civilization. Finally, he’ll discuss how this can change the way we approach climate change and sustainability.
