Darwin Day Celebration Grows in Lincoln, Nebraska

Celebrations of Charles Darwin’s birth aren’t just planned in virtual online space or on La-Dee-Da Ivy League quadrangles.

The University of Nebraska at Lincoln is celebrating the 200th birth of Charles Darwin all spring long with a public lecture series, an art show and a three-day interdisciplinary symposium. The efforts are being organized [...]

Darwin Day Facebook Site and Birthday Song Project Evolve Rapidly

Happy Birthday, Charles Darwin is trying to get 200,000 people to sign up on its Facebook page with birthday wishes for Darwin’s 200th, coming up on February 12. The point with all of the group’s activities — including a big conference call to all sing Happy Birthday together — isn’t really to wish Charles Darwin [...]

These animals exist today, but as a group they’re very ancient: At least 635 million years ancient. That’s the age of rocks within which their steroid, 24-isopropylcholestane, was found. [...]
