A Walk through Time, April 13-15

A Walk Through Time . . . from stardust to us , a mile-long display of approximately 90 panels detailing moments from five billion years of Earth's history, will be set up through the Princeton campus from April 13 to 15. The panels are dispersed so that each foot represents one million years.

To kick off the display, Princeton Environmental Action (PEA), in coordination with faculty members, has planned a symposium at 3 p.m. on April 13 in Frick's Kresge Auditorium. Among the speakers are Professor Kenneth Deffeyes and Sid Liebes '52, the display's creator. They will discuss the unique process that allowed complex life to evolve as well as the fragility of the environment and ecosystems.
