On Thursday, October 11, 2012, please join us as we welcome Dr. Alfonso F. Davila, a Scientist from NASA Ames and the SETI Institute. Dr. Davila will present, "Water in the Solar System, and the Search for Life." This talk, held at 4pm in Mendocino Hall, room 1015, is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
Dr. Davila studied Geophysics at the University of Munich, Germany, and Marine Sciences at the University of Vigo, Spain. His latest research interests include the study of the geology, geochemistry, habitability and life in the extremely dry Atacama Desert and the Antarctic Dry Valleys. Results are expanding our understanding of the limits of life on Earth, and help us improve models of planetary habitability, particularly the possibility of life on Mars.
