ArthurMurchisonThe Rock Stars are geologists. Deep Time is the vast and almost fathomless history of the earth. Dr. Earl Arthur Murchison, AOF member and resident science historian, has produced an audio/video gem of science lore. His presentation is "A History of Geology: Rock Stars Discover Deep Time," and it shows how we learned to trace the eath's story by looking carefully at the old, old, old rocks beneath our feet.

Our time-tripping tour guide is an enthusiastic science history buff who has spent much enjoyable and informative time with 19th-century British scientists (called "natural philosophers" in the day). Once again he will take us into his Wayback Machine and revisit their world with the help of digital images, music, and narration flavored with sound effects.

Please join him, and us, in another exciting adventure.

Note, this event begins at 2 pm, a bit later than usual. When we speak of aeons, does it matter?
