The Earth: A Human Habitat

A presentation by Dr. Massimo ROBBERTO, Scientist at the Space Telescope Institute Baltimore, Dr. Massimo BIONAZ, Scientist at the Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois and Dr. Pablo MARTINEZ DE ANGUITA, Professor of Rural Development at Rey Juan Carlos University, Madrid

Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center

Wonder is the most human response to the beauty of reality and has always led human beings to raise questions: Why is the sky so impressive this evening? And why these colors? The very fact that we exist is itself a great source of wonder. For it is by no means obvious that there should be human beings within the universe. This event represents an attempt, from a strictly scientific point of view, to address the kinds of questions that arise when we consider the Earth as a human habitat.

The event is open to the public and free of charge.
