Science Underground presents "Freeze Frame: Time-lapse Photography in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica" with Jay Dickson, Science Data Analyst in Geological Sciences at Brown University with an introduction by James Head, Professor of Geological Sciences at Brown University

The McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica are the closest analog to the surface of Mars on Earth. For the last five years, we have been capturing this unique landscape by installing time-lapse cameras to monitor the flow of water in the coldest, driest place in the world. What does this tell us about water on Mars? And how do you survive and conduct science in one of the most extreme environments on Earth?

This event is free and open to the public. If you're planning on coming, please drop us a line at for a tentative head count. Space is limited and seating is first come, first serve.

Attendees are responsible for purchasing their own beverages and any additional food items.

Science Underground is a Providence-based science cafe for anyone interested in learning about science and talking with scientists in a non-academic setting. Join us for light refreshments and good conversation!

Science Underground is sponsored by Brown University's Science Center, The Triple Helix, and Sigma Xi.
