How long on average does a civilization like our last? 200 years? 2000 years? 2 million years? Join Adam Frank as he addresses the question of sustainability of technological cultures (like ours) in its astrobiological context. Using what’s already known about planets and life, it is now possible to create a broad program for modeling co-evolving “trajectories” for technological species and their planets to answer broad questions about life in the Universe and, more importantly, about our future on Earth.

Both the live event and simulcast webinar are free to attend. Registration is required as seating in Sloan Auditorium is limited. We hope to see you on campus!

This lecture is also part of the Jesse L. Rosenberger Seminar Series for the Center for Energy & Environment.
