We are very excited to announce the next Science Underground event!

On April 3rd, Jay Dickson, Science Data Analyst in Geological Sciences at Brown University, will be presenting about acquiring time-lapse photography of the McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica. The McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica are the closest analog to the surface of Mars on Earth.

We will kick-off the event with an introduction by James Head, Professor of Geological Sciences at Brown University.

We are also excited to announce our new, larger location! The event will be from 7-8:30pm at Flatbread Company (161 Cushing Street), right next to the CVS.

Complete information about the event is below. Please share this event with your friends and don't forget to email us for a tentative head count. You can find the event on Facebook here.

Science Underground presents:

"Freeze Frame: Time-lapse Photography in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica" with Jay Dickson, Science Data Analyst in Geological Sciences at Brown University

With an Introduction by James Head, Professor of Geological Sciences at Brown University

The McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarcticaare the closest analog to the surface of Mars on Earth. For the last five years, we have been capturing this unique landscape by installing time-lapse cameras to monitor the flow of water in the coldest, driest place in the world. What does this tell us about water on Mars? And how do you survive and conduct science in one of the most extreme environments on Earth?


7-8:30pm on Thursday, April 3rd, 2014
Refreshments available at 7pm. Presentation will start at 7:15pm.
