Friday, Apr 21, 2017 at 8:00 PM (AK)

Presented by Microbiologist, Catherine Pongratz.

In Victorian times many physical phenomena had already been discovered and described by natural laws, but life's most eloquent mechanism was still unknown. Join the young Charles Darwin on an adventurous voyage of exploration circumnavigating the world with the H.M.S. Beagle. Hear Darwin himself reveal the simple and beautiful mechanism that explains the evolution of all life on Earth: Natural Selection.
