ASTROBIOLOGY: Using Earth Rocks to Look for Alien Life

Friday, January 23, 7 p.m.

The search for life in space involves scientists of all stripes—biologists, physicists, astronomers, chemists…and geologists? NASA-funded UW–Madison geoscientists use Earth’s rock and fossil record to shape the search for life in our solar system and beyond. At this DIY event, you’ll explore the creative ways these researchers are trying to answer the age-old question: Are we alone?

Explore the possibilities of life in the universe!
Registration coming soon.

About DIY Science

Hands-on laboratory experiences are not just for kids! Each month, a different activity encourages adult (18+) audiences to put on lab coats, goggles and gloves and get a firsthand sense of cutting-edge research.

Usually held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday evenings, these do-it-yourself labs feature different topics ranging from epigenetics to microfluidics to nanotechnology to rapid prototyping and beyond.

DIY Science is supported by Morgridge Institute for Research, UW–Madison and WARF.
