FYS viewing of Cosmos

10:00am - 11:30am EDT September 25, 2014

Location: Remick Heritage Center, Presbyterian Hall

All First Year Seminar classes will meet in the Heritage Center to view an episode of Cosmos: “The Clean Room”.

Host Neil deGrasse Tyson takes us to a time before the Earth was formed to learn how one determined scientist discovered how old our planet truly is in the “The Clean Room” episode of COSMOS: A SPACETIME ODYSSEY. But along the way, he also discovered a source of dangerous contamination in our environment and eventually used his research to change the world for the better.

After the episode, a panel of faculty will discuss the ideas and issues raised by the program.

This event is only open to FYS students, faculty, and class assistants, who are all expected to attend if possible.

For admission information, see the event description.
