Andrew Berry and Janet Browne

Convergent Evolution: Charles Darwin, Alfred Russel Wallace, and the discovery of natural selection

Click here for directions.

Most everyone has heard of Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, but what of his contemporary Alfred Russel Wallace? What are Wallace’s contributions to the field of evolution? Through this case study, comparing Darwin and Wallace, what can we learn about how scientific reputation is formed? Join us for a debate-style special Science by the Pint evening with Dr. Andrew Berry and Dr. Janet Browne!

In addition to our April 13th Science by the Pint event, we have

Science by the Pint @ Aeronaut: Gravitational Waves
Aeronaut Brewing Company, 14 Tyler St, Somerville, MA 02143
Wednesday, April 8 7:00pm

MIT Professor Scott Hughes and his group from the Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research will be settling in to discuss the phenomenon of gravitational waves, how they arise from the movements of supermassive objects, and the great lengths to which physicists go to detect them. Come grab a seat, and if you’re lucky, someone will explain the plot of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar to you.
