WHAT: When a Biology Meets a Biology (Coming through the Sky)
When we humans get around to colonizing a planet or moon in another star system, it will likely happen where a biology already exists, i.e. an ‘exobiology’. Protecting each of those from the other will be the challenge this SkepTalk tackles in some depth.
WHO: David Almandsmith is a board member of the Bay Area Skeptics and a long-time nerd. He graduated in biology from U.C. Berkeley and studied physiology at Cal State Eastbay. A version of this talk was presented at the 100 Year Starship Symposium in Houston.
WHEN: 7:30PM Thursday 13 September
WHERE: La Peña Lounge, 3105 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley [Click for Map] It’s a short walk from Ashby BART.
HOW: Presented as a FREE public service by the Bay Area Skeptics.
WHY: Because we’re curious creatures.
