Lecture 11: Life Beyond Its Planet of Origin
Posted in Stanford University
Rocco Mancinelli, Bay Area Environmental Research Institute, discusses how recent research has is expanding our understanding of how organisms can survive and evolve outside of planet Earth.
Lecture 10: Darwin's Birthday
Posted in Stanford University
Professor Lynn Rothschild and Stephen Palumbi, Director of the Hopkins Marine Station, discuss Charles Darwin's career, from his childhood to the end of his life. Naturally, the theory of evolution is also addressed.
Lecture 9: The Search for Life on Mars
Posted in Stanford University
Dr. Janice Bishop (of the Carl Sagan Center at the SETI Institute and the NASA Ames Research Center) discusses the mineralogy and geology of Mars and the active search for life on the red planet.
Lecture 8: Catastrophic Impacts in Earth's History
Posted in Stanford University
There are few events with a greater consequence than an asteroid impact. David Morrison, NASA Lunar Science Institute, discusses the discovery of the impact that caused the last mass extinction and explains NASA's research on the danger of future events.
Lecture 7: How Predictable Is Evolution?
Posted in Stanford University
This lecture discusses the predictability of evolution in regards to the world today. By reviewing the history of biological adaptation on Earth we gain much insight into topics like convergent evolution.
Lecture 6: Life in Extreme Environments
Posted in Stanford University
Professor Lynn Rothschild discusses the life and evolution of extremophiles and their relevance to the initial evolution of life and the possibilities of biospheres on even extreme worlds.
