Seasonal Special Happenings

Mars, Microbes, and Dortmunder Gold

When: Mon., July 11 2011

Is there life on Mars? Good question. Is there beer on Mars? A better question yet! While answers to these burning issues remain in short supply, you can learn about plenty of other intriguing topics tonight at 6:30 at Case Western Reserve University's Science Cafe, held in the Tasting Room of the Great Lakes Brewing Company. On tonight's menu: Dr. Ralph Harvey, CWRU's associate professor of planetary materials, presenting a program dubbed "Mars, Meteorites, and Microbes: An Update on the Continuing Search for Life on Mars." Harvey, currently working on mission support for future Mars explorations, will lead tonight's participants through explorations of Martian history and the planet's relation to Earth — all over a nice, cold brewski. (The event is free, but budget in extra bucks for a Dortmunder Gold or two.) For more information, call 216-368-5176 or visit case.edu/affil/sigmaxi/july11event.html. The tasting room is at 2701 Carroll Ave. in Ohio City. — Hayden
