TIS English Lecture Series: Gifts From Space

Author: Tsukuba International School, Issue: June 2002, Topic: Speeches

The 2nd Tsukuba International School English Lecture
Supported by Tsukuba Board of Education, Tsukuba City

About the Lecture Series On April 13, Tsukuba International School began a lecture series as a service to the community, with Dr. Tokio K. Ohska talking about the extinction of dinosaurs 65 million years ago due to a giant impact on earth and how that event had helped scientists understand what would happen if an all-out nuclear war occurred. These lectures are being given in "easy-to-understand" English on interesting topics. While the one-hour lecture is given in English (with lots of visual aids), the audience may ask questions in either English or Japanese. Future presentations are being planned. If any of our Alien Times readers would like to make a future presentation, please contact Dr. Ohska, Tsukuba International School or the Alien Times.

Summary of Dr. Mohri's Talk Everyday I felt as if I were in Alice's wonderland in space. The earth is literally breath-taking. This blue orb with the beautiful blue water and thin, delicate atmosphere, floats in the black vastness of space and is the only place that we know of that can sustain life. The excitement of space was beyond my imagination. The preciousness of the Earth, and my return "home" filled me with newfound appreciation for our planet. I also realized that the entire space program was, and is, a result of amazing advances in science and technology of which I was the direct beneficiary.
