Lowell42: Deep Time - The Solid Earth Meets The Night Sky

“The mind seemed to grow giddy by looking so far into the abyss of time.” – John Playfair, 1805.

Speaker: Dr. G. Kent Colbath
“The mind seemed to grow giddy by looking so far into the abyss of time.” – John Playfair, 1805. The notion of “deep time,” that the earth is impossibly (but not infinitely) old, is the single greatest idea the study geology has contributed to human knowledge. Tonight we’ll explore the connection between geological and astronomical calculations of deep time, and the critical role played by Lowell Observatory in determining the age of the universe.
