MSA EVENTS & SPEAKERS

"Gold: A journey from the Big Bang to the forest of the Amazon"

Presented by Dr. Terry Wallace Jr.

MSA February meeting is virtual via ZOOM.

Dr. Terry Wallace Jr.MSA’s March 11th program “Gold: A journey from the Big Bang to the forest of the Amazon,” will be presented by a noted scientist and friend of mineralogy Dr. Terry Wallace Jr. Terry’s program illuminates minerals are the DNA of the planet Earth. They contain the fragments of the complex history of our planet from its formation nearly 4.6 billion years ago, the creation of planet-wide ocean, an oxygen-rich atmosphere, and the rise of life. More than 4,500 mineral species have been identified on Earth, representing a variety nearly 100 times larger than any other planet in the solar system – a robust indication of the uniqueness of our planet.
