On Tuesday, 10/21: 6:00-7:30pm at the MIT Museum, discuss “Why Life Got Big.” For much of the earth’s history, microbes were the only living organisms on the planet. What spurred the evolution of larger-sized and more diverse animals? Discover the origins of life on earth and how life itself can drastically alter the landscape of our planet. Then learn what prospects lie ahead of finding habitable planets and even other types of life outside of the Earth. Come with questions, share your thoughts, and leave with new knowledge and understanding. For more information, visit the MIT Museum. Photo by Jon Rawlinson.
