Quantifying the Unquantifiable!

Join the Blue Marble Space Institute of Science (BMSIS) for the next "Beer with BMSIS" seminar on Thursday, July 3rd at 11:00 AM Pacific / 2:00 PM Eastern. This month we feature a conversation with Prof. Abel Mendez, Director of the Planetary Habitability Laboratory of the University @ UPR Arecibo. He will talk about the use of methods to quantify the unquantifiable, a planet's habitability. Beverage introduction by Craig Hardgrove.

"Beer with BMSIS" is an informal scientific conversation series on a broad set of topics relevant to the research undertaken by the Blue Marble Space Institute of Science. Each show lasts about 45 minutes and begins with a description of a tasty beverage by one of our members or friends. The featured speaker then talks for about 20 minutes, which is followed by a conversation with the audience for the next 20 minutes or so. These conversations are recorded and also published as a podcast series on iTunes.

If you would like to join our live conversations each month, subscribe to the Friends of BMSIS group to receive updates about seminars and more. Send a message to to join this group.
