Life On Mars

On April 20th from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and April 21st from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Pratt Institute will present “Science at the Art/Archeology Interface", a symposium on science and art, All events will take place on the Brooklyn Campus and are FREE and open to the public.

On April 20, in Room E2 of the ARC Building, speakers will present on the topic of X-ray fluorescence and mobile Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) applied to the study of works of art. That evening, Cindie Kehlet, assistant professor of chemistry, will provide updates on collaborative research projects between The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Pratt Institute, and New York University. A poster session on student research projects will follow somewhere deep in the Department of Mathematics and Science.

I have no idea what any of this means, but I think we would do well to make friends with the scientists.
