A Rather Unorthodox Look At the History of the Earth

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Event Details

Have you wondered what “4.6 billion years” of time looks like? 

Have you wanted to see a history of our planet that you could really follow that wasn’t full of science jargon and non-understandable mumbo jumbo? 

This is the talk for you! 

You know it’s going to be fun when the roll of toilet paper shows up. Toilet paper? Yes, toilet paper. The entire history of the Earth was drawn out by your presenter, astronomer Marc D’antonio (you have seen him on Discovery and  History Channel) on a full roll of toilet paper to illustrate how LONG history really is. 117’ long, this history of the Earth is a lighthearted yet VERY illuminating view of the Earth’s history. The talk takes the attendee from Earth’s formation through the arrival of the first bacteria, to the creation of our breathable atmosphere, zipping by the uplift of the first continents, to the appearances by fish, insects, dinosaurs, and ice ages, and onward to extinction events that changed the face of evolution on the planet. Finally, we end up in the very room we are in that day, all represented on the toilet paper history of the Earth. At the end attendees have a truly different view of the history of our planet, which they will always remember with every trip to the … ahem…bathroom.

Free for Ages 12 and up!!
