Wednesday 26th February
One day 66 million years ago a largish lump of rock entered Earth's atmosphere and made a splash close to where the Yucatán Peninsula is today. This event is known as the Chicxulub Incident and is noteworthy as it directly wiped out almost 75% of plant life and animal life on Earth, including almost all dinosaurs.
John will give a talk on this event and will look at how and why it happened and the full ramifications for the succeeding course of life on Earth. We shall look at the role in the catastrophe of Jupiter and see how life on Earth is affected, influenced and indeed governed by the behaviour of other planetary bodies in the Solar system, something that is only now being recognised by evolutionary scientists.
8.30pm at the YMCA in Chelmsford.
Note: Unless otherwise stated, Wednesday events start at 8.30pm at the YMCA in Victoria Road, Chelmsford
