Adventure Science Center invites you to join us for a series of informal discussions on current issues in science. Whether tackling how science can solve global problems or help us to understand how the universe works, these gatherings are NOT lectures. They are an opportunity for you to share your opinions, ideas and thoughts with other science lovers and to meet local scientists in a fun, casual setting. So grab a cup of coffee (or other adult beverage) and let's chat!
Schedule: Join us on the Third Thursday of each month at FIDO in Hillsboro Village.

NEXT Cafe Topic:
The Search for a Second Earth
7-8 p.m., Thursday, May 20
FIDO cafe in Hillsboro Village
With all the galaxies in the universe, how likely is it that we will find another another planet like Earth? Are there other planets capable of sustaining life similar to what we know? How would we find it if it does exist? What would it mean to us here on Earth if we did find it? In May, our guest will be astrobiologist Dr. Todd Gary of Tennessee State University. We'll discuss the decades long search by astronomers to find other Earth-like planets in the universe.
Bring your thoughts, opinions and questions and prepare for a fun, lively discussion!
Dr. Todd Gary is Director of the Institute of Understanding Biological Systems (IUBS) at Tennessee State University he is the Principal Investigator for the management of the NASA Astrobiology Institute-Minority Institute Research Support program (NAI-MIRS).
