Secret Science Club presents Light of the Stars: Alien Worlds and the Fate of the Earth with Astrophysicist & Author Adam Frank, Monday, June 18, 8PM @ the Bell House, FREE!

Astrophysicist, author, and NPR contributor Adam Frank explores exoplanets and off-world atmospherics to gain a better understanding of how Earth is evolving—from the life-giving rise of oxygen 3 billion years ago to the existential threat posed by climate change today.

In this far-out talk, coinciding with the release of his new book Light of the Stars, Adam Frank looks at gases on Mars, robotic missions to other planets, and mathematical calculations about the possibility of life elsewhere in the Universe—all for the purpose of gaining cosmic perspective on the fate of our own planet.

Adam Frank is co-founder of NPR’s 13.7: Cosmos and Culture blog and an astrophysics professor at the University of Rochester, where he researches star formation, exoplanets, and astrobiology. He is the author of Light of the Stars: Alien Worlds and the Fate of the Earth.
