The university’s Department of Biology and Chemistry invites you to join us for the seventh annual Dalton Lecture at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9, in Bauman Auditorium.
Dr. Jennifer Wiseman, a senior astrophysicist at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, will speak on the topic “Universe of Wonder: Galaxies, Stars, Planets and Life.” Admission is free, and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
In the presentation, Wiseman will investigate what new discoveries are revealing about the cosmos and the significance of life in a dynamic universe. She will also give a scientific talk at 3 p.m. on Feb. 9 in Wood-Mar Auditorium entitled, “Frontiers of Astronomical Discovery: Galaxies, Dark Energy, Planets and Life.”
