Natural Selection  (Public Programs)

In honor of the MSU Museum's Darwin Discovery Day we will be showing the planetarium show "Natural Selection." "Natural Selection" celebrates the 150th anniversary of the publication of "On the Origin of Species" and the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth. We will join Darwin on his voyage with the HMS Beagle to the Galapagos Islands where he was inspired to develop his later theory of transmutation by natural selection. From the comfort of Down House in Kent, Darwin himself will explain the mechanism of natural selection to the audience, and support it by showing many beautiful examples in nature. Even though this show focuses on biology and evolution, a brief astronomical sky talk will follow.
