Recipe for Life, Science Talk

Earth was once a molten ball totally uninhabitable. In a geological instant, it was filled with life. What do we know about this transformation? And could there be more than one recipe for the transition from non-life to life?

    Although I'm an engineer, much of the content was beyond my comprehension. Ah well...I guess science is advancing faster than my brain!

      Science has a way of obsoleting everything I know.

      Hello, it seems I stumbled over this interesting talk too late - it says it is sold out. Is it possible to just come around and attend the show?

    My family cannot attend, So I have 2 spots with my registration (tried to use eventbrite to put them back but cannot do)

    Send me a message if you want to meet at the entrance or something.

      Thanks, Leora! If you don't mind, we'll interpret your message to say something sweeter than "I am less than three times the size of Wonderfest." 8-)
