Monday, September 20 (10:00 -- 11:30 AM): Extraterrestrial Civilizations are Plausible (Repeat of September 10 Lecture)
Lectures will be held in the classroom of the Leander McCormick Observatory (LMO) 10:00 -- 11:30 AM Fridays. There should be adequate parking; most of the parking is on the left before you pass the observatory. Please park head-in to maximize the number of cars that can park. Do not park next to the small white house on the right. LMO is not fully accessible: there are 2 steps to get from the parking lot to the observatory floor level and 2 more to get into the classroom. The toilet is downstairs.
