    Harvard Science Book Talk: Sarah Stewart Johnson, "The Sirens of Mars"

    7:00pm

    Location: 

    Harvard FAS Division of Science—Online

    Mars was once similar to Earth, but today there are no rivers, no lakes, no oceans. Coated in red dust, the terrain is bewilderingly empty. And yet multiple spacecraft are circling Mars, sweeping over Terra Sabaea, Syrtis Major, the dunes of Elysium, and Mare Sirenum—on the brink, perhaps, of a staggering find, one that would inspire humankind as much as any discovery in the history of modern science.

    In her beautifully observed, deeply personal book, The Sirens of Mars: Searching for Life on Another World, Georgetown scientist Sarah Stewart Johnson tells the story of...

    11:00am to 12:00pm

    Location: 

    Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health—Online

These restrictions can lead to feelings of stress, sadness, and loneliness.

    The aim of this forum is to discuss the effects of the pandemic on older adults and to offer tips on how older adults can stay mentally and physically healthy during this unique time...
