    Extreme Double Feature: "Cosmos" and "Life in Hell"

    Sunday Feb 11
    2 pm - 4 pm

    Cinemapolis

    Featuring "Some of the Things Molecules Do" and "Survivors of Heat"
    Join Neil deGrasse Tyson on a voyage to discover the relatedness of all living things on Earth, and the possible evolution of life in the cosmos, as you retrace the story of life on Earth and discover the workings of artificial and natural selection. Then, journey into the world of extremophiles - organisms that thrive in extreme conditions - and visit the life that exists in the hottest places on Earth, from the Sahara's sands to deep-sea volcanoes and boiling hot springs. Admission is free for this special showing.

    In Earth's distant past, methanogens ruled the world! Delve into the world of microbes and anaerobes, organisms that live without air. The discovery of methanogens, anaerobes that produce methane gas, led to a new understanding of evolutionary history on Earth. In this exciting presentation, we'll explore the role of these mighty microbes in the carbon cycle, learn the secrets of their discovery, and find out how they helped us revise the tree of life.

    Complex life, including animals, evolved against a backdrop of extreme conditions including scarce oxygen, toxic hydrogen sulfide, and millions of years of global glaciation. In this talk, we will learn how life went through major transitions leading up to the rise of animals, and how extreme conditions may have actually spurred on evolutionary innovation.

    8 am - 8:45 am

    The Yoga Farm

    At Yoga Farm, we teach meditation for householders—people who live in the world, who have relatioships, jobs, families, houses, and to-do lists.

    In this weekly session, we work with a new Sutra from the book 'The Radiance Sutras' by Lorin Roche. Each Sutra is a beautiful exploration of one of the 'gateways' to meditation.

    From 8-8:15am we read, discuss and explore a Sutra, then we enjoy silent meditation  together until about 8:45. 

    This offering is FREE to the Public.

    Life at the Extremes - Darwin Family Day

    Saturday Feb 17
    10 pm - 3 am

    Museum of the Earth

    How does life not only adapt to difficult stresses, but thrive? The Museum of the Earth welcomes you to learn about extreme life at Darwin Family Day. Come listen to Cornell astronomy researchers, hear stories, make stuff, meet Team Microbe, and discover some organisms that live on the extremes.

    Storytime: "Tiny Creatures: The World of Microbes"
    Time: 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
    Take a closer look at microbes. Examine the different kinds of microorganisms we interact with every day. Observe microbes through a microscope and their interaction with everyday objects. Get hands on with a “tiny” science experiment and make your own microbe to take home.

    Presentation: “How life on Earth changes how we search for life on other planets”
    Jack Madden, PhD Student in Cornell University's Department of Astronomy
    Time: 1 pm
    Jack has been working with Dr. Lisa Kaltenegger on exoplanet habitability at Cornell since 2014. His work involves modeling atmospheres and identifying the biggest factors that influence the conditions possible for life on planets outside our solar system.

    Plus:
    - TEAM MICROBE from Cornell: Learn about the microbial world and see for yourself the interesting life of microscopic creatures.
    - Adaptations station: what kind of adaptations are needed to live in the harsh environment of a desert?
    - Tardigrade viewing: See and learn about these strange creatures that can survive in extremes environments.
    - and Face Painting!
