DALLAS- Did you ever wish you could ask questions while watching one of those great shows on the Discovery or National Geographic channels? The Mathematics and Science Division at Brookhaven College is inviting the public into the discussion of space, sustainability of species and forensic anthropology with a spring lecture series.
Great Balls of Fire: Meteorites and 'Meteowrongs'
Guest lecturer Ron DiLulio will present "Great Balls of Fire: Meteorites and Meteowrongs" on March 23 at 7 p.m. in Bldg. X, Room X1091. Dilulio is the planetarium and astronomy lab director at the University of North Texas.
Feeding the World One Fish at a Time: The Collapse of World Fisheries and Rise of Aquaculture
Ione Hunt von Herbing, Ph.D., director of the Marine Conservation Physiology Laboratory at the University of North Texas, will present "Feeding the World One Fish at a Time: The Collapse of World Fisheries and Rise of Aquaculture" April 13 at 7:30 p.m. in Bldg. X, Room X1091. Overfishing has been recognized as one of the world's greatest and most immediate environmental problems. Aquaculture, or fish farming, now provides almost half of all fish consumed by humans and is the fastest growing industry in the US, but is not yet environmentally sustainable.
