Extreme Life! -- Darwin Days 2018

An annual commemoration of the birthday and ideas of Charles Darwin (1809-1882)

February 11 - 17

Celebrate the wild world of evolution with PRI and explore the topic of "extreme life," stretching from the earliest life on Earth to the search for possible life on other worlds. Visit the extremes of life on Earth, from creatures that can survive intense temperatures or caustic chemical conditions to microbes that thrive only in the absence of oxygen. Then, launch yourself into space to follow scientists' search for how life might evolve on other planets. The week will be filled with speakers, panel discussions, a trivia night, and our Family Day on the 17th at the Museum of the Earth. Co-sponsored with Cornell University.
