"Plate Tectonics and the History of Mountains on Earth"

When: Mon., May 9, 6:30 p.m. 2011

Earth is the only planet in the solar system with tectonic plates. This kind of matters because, as microscopic plants in the ocean die, they fall to the bottom and into the crust of the Earth, where plates are grinding underneath each other. This effectively recycles carbon and keeps our planet from enjoying a Venus-like "runaway greenhouse effect," says universetoday.com. Having just read the power of the plate, don't be surprised if your mind just crumbles in amazement at tonight's free 6:30 lecture and Q&A: "Plate Tectonics and the History of Mountains on Earth" at Jack Quinn Irish Alehouse & Pub (21 S. Tejon St., csscienceontap.org). — Bryce Crawford
