“Ice Age to Space Age: A Year of Following Childhood Dreams” with Dr. Ron Carsten

Rarely as adults with busy careers do we get the opportunity to pursue childhood dreams. Serendipitously, the year 2011 provided just such an opportunity for Dr. Carsten. He started the adventure as a Denver Museum of Nature and Science Teacher Digger at the ice age Ziegler site and continued the adventure by watching the launch of the Mars Space Laboratory Curiosity rover at Cape Canaveral. This lecture will focus on the discoveries at the Ziegler site while waxing fondly about how random events coalesce to bring childhood dreams alive 40 years later.

The Ice Age Discovery Center is located on the Snowmass Village Mall. Parking is provided in lots 4, 5, 8 and 9.

These events are free and open to the public.

“Bringing Back Ice Age Beasts: Can We Really Clone a Mastodon?” with Tom Cardomone

Serious scientists in North America, Korea and Siberia have sequenced the DNA of Wooly Mammoths and some are restoring the grassy mammoth steppe ecosystems once widespread during the Ice Age. After all, once cloned, they’ll need a place to live. Could Colorado’s wildlife once again include mammoths, mastodons, giant-horned bison, huge short-face bear and other magnificent mammals that actually roamed the mountains and plains quite recently? The critical steps from cloning, to de-extinction, to re-wilding are challenging, and our discussion will be enlightening.
