Yuri’s Night – Support Space Exploration!

NASA Ames Research Center

Yuri’s Night is an international event (30 countries) which celebrates Yuri Gagarin and the April 1961 shuttle flight.

Did you know that the celebration is held to support space exploration? If President Obama’s decision to kill the NASA’s Constellation program (to the moon) and to turn future exploration over to commercial companies bothers you, please let Congress know.

Houston Congressman Peter Olson continues to be skeptical of Obama NASA space plan.

Lecture on Charles Darwin and the Origin of Life

Charles Darwin

Charles Darwin

A new NASA Ames Research Center lecture series on the Evolution of Science and Technology and its impacts on our society begin this Thursday, March 12 at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts.

The first lecture given by Dr. James Strick, an Associate Professor at the Franklin and Marshall College, science historian and author, will cover Charles Darwin and his thoughts on the origins of life. He will also draw connections to modern origin of life research supported by NASA.

Dr. Strick has studied how scientists have attempted to define life and explain its origin. He has also examined the debate that has taken place among Darwin’s supporters. “We expect a story about the new evolutionary science to include much heated objection from religious quarters,” he said. “But a look at how divisive the issue was among the Darwinians themselves is an even more complex and enlightening story.”
