Black Holes, Beakers, and Books: An Empire of Ice

Sunday, March 24, 2013  
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Are you interested in exploring the vast mysteries of the cosmos, understanding human evolutionary history or talking about the long-term future of the planet earth? These topics and more will be discussed in Black Holes, Beakers, and Books, a book club that reads and discusses popular science books published within the last five years.

Join us for a discussion of An Empire of Ice: Scott, Shackleton, and the Heroic Age of Antarctic Science by Edward J. Larson. Pulitzer Prize winner Larson is less concerned with the rivalries of Antarctic explorers than with their considerable scientific contributions. The incredibly arduous expeditions of Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton in the early 20th century brought about discoveries in geology, biology, and oceanography and were propelled by widespread interest in science back home.
