Everybodys Human: Looking at Star Trek through an Evolutionary Lens

Friday 03:00pm

Panelists:
Dr. Mohamed Noor  

Drawing on relevant scenes from the series, Noor presents evidence for the existence of a common ancestor for life on Earth, and clarifies misconceptions about evolutionary biology. He discusses the science of evolution and how we might use modern evolutionary approaches to understand the origins of extraterrestrial life— if and when such life is found. No biology background is needed, but you might leave with a greater understanding of evolution.
