Martian Food-The UA Controlled Environment Agriculture Center
Gene Giacomelli, director of the University of Arizona Controlled Environment Agriculture Center (CEAC), was excited to share the same challenges in growing crops as the fictitious Mr. Watney experienced while stranded on Mars, as depicted in the book and recently released movie, "Martian". The NASA funded research has a mission to develop systems for growing plant food in harsh environments such as distant planets like Mars. CEAC created a prototype environment, the Lunar Greenhouse, which provides the perfect combination of heat, light and humidity so plants will grow. Red and blue led grow lights, a combination that produces an intense magenta cast and lack any green component optimize both energy and plant growth, key to plant survival where resources are scarce. The Lunar Greenhouse also uses a hydroponic system to deliver water and nutrients directly to the plant roots. This is a serious consideration for space travel to alien worlds that lack proper soil. Giacomelli, however, theorizes that the soil on Mars could be used in a closed environment to support plant growth, given the proper hydration and nutrient supplements. Giacomelli is a big fan of Matt Damon, who portrays the stranded botanist in the film. He acknowledges that Mr. Watney is fortunate to have a background in mechanical engineering and botany, a rare combination, “except for people coming through our educational program here at the University of Arizona, Controlled Environment Agricultural Center”.

Education For Whom and For What?
Noam Chomsky, a world-renowned linguist, intellectual and political activist, spoke at the University of Arizona on Feb. 8, 2012. His lecture, "Education: For Whom and For What?" featured a talk on the state of higher education, followed by a question-and-answer session. Chomsky, an Institute Professor and a Professor Emeritus of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he worked for more than 50 years, has been concerned with a range of education-related issues in recent years. Among them: How do we characterize the contemporary state of the American education system? What happens to the quality of education when public universities become more privatized? Are public universities in danger of being converted into facilities that produce graduates-as-commodities for the job market? What is the role of activism in education? With unprecedented tuition increases and budget struggles occurring across American campuses, these are questions that are more relevant than ever.

Astronomical Alchemy: The Origin of the Elements
Dr. Philip A. Pinto, Associate Professor, Astronomy/Steward Observatory, University of Arizona. One of the greatest achievements of twentieth-century science is an understanding of the origin of matter. While hydrogen and helium were produced in the Big Bang, the origin of the heavier elements—the silicon in rocks, the iron in our blood, and the oxygen we breathe--lies in the lifecycle of stars. Nuclear reactions, which transform light elements into heavier ones, cause stars to shine and ultimately to explode, seeding the universe with their production. These newly formed elements, the building blocks of ordinary matter, play a central role in the formation of planets and the evolution of life. Presented Feb. 22, 1011. Cosmic Origins is the story of the universe but it's also our story. Hear about origin of space and time, mass and energy, the atoms in our bodies, the compact objects where matter can end up, and the planets and moons where life may flourish. Modern cosmology includes insights and triumphs, but mysteries remain. Join the six speakers who explore cosmology's historical and cultural backdrop to explain the discoveries that speak of our cosmic origins. http://cos.arizona.edu/cosmic/

The Evolution of Modern Neurosurgery: A History of Trial and Error, Success and Failure
G. Michael Lemole, Jr., MD, Chief, Division of Neurosurgery and Professor of Surgery, UA College of Medicine The science and art of neurosurgery has advanced dramatically in the past few decades, and yet its history is firmly grounded in a paradigm of surgical trial and error. Collaborations with allied specialties have made these "trials" safer, but much of what we know of functional brain anatomy comes from disease or iatrogenic perturbations. This lecture will explore the keen observations and dogged persistence that led to our current state of the art. We will explore how this surgical knowledge of the brain makes our current practice safer and how future technologies will advance our understanding with less invasive but more meaningful impact.

Noam Chomsky: What is Special About Language?
Noam Chomsky, a world-renowned linguist, intellectual and political activist lectured at the University of Arizona on Feb. 7, 2012, on "What is Special About Language?" Noam Chomsky is an Institute Professor and a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he worked for more than 50 years. Chomsky, who according to The New York Times is "arguably the most important intellectual alive," is credited with revolutionizing the field of linguistics by introducing generative grammar and the concept of a universal grammar, which underlies all human language and is based in the innate structure of language. Beyond linguistics, his work has influenced fields such as cognitive science, philosophy, computer science, mathematics, and psychology. Noam Chomsky has received numerous awards, including the Kyoto Prize in Basic Sciences, the Helmholtz Medal, the Dorothy Eldridge Peacemaker Award, and the Ben Franklin Medal in Computer and Cognitive Science. Since the 1960s, Chomsky has been an influential social analyst and critic. He has published numerous books on U.S. foreign and domestic policies, international politics, the media and related subjects. His writings are among the most quoted in today's world.

Total Organic Carbon (starring Priyanca Sarkar & Lucy Cheng)
Total organic carbon (TOC) is a broad measure of the amount of organic material dissolved in water. TOC is the carbon specifically in organic compounds including sugars, vitamins, bacterial components and organic acids. Benzene and trichloroethylene can also appear as TOC. The presence of high TOC may not necessarily indicate a potential health problem in the water, but provides a broad measure of water quality. http://wsp.arizona.edu/

Space, Time and Gravity
Sam Gralla Assistant Professor of Physics University of Arizona At the dawn of the twentieth century, Einstein revolutionized our conception of reality, showing that space and time are not merely the stage on which the show unfolds, but dynamical entities that stretch, bend, and vibrate to give rise to the force we know as gravity. A century later, the vibrations of spacetime have been directly detected as gravitational radiation from colliding black holes, confirming Einstein’s prediction and ushering in a new era in observational astronomy. How did physicists measure these minuscule vibrations, and what does it mean for our understanding of the universe? And what is the next revolution, fomenting right now, in our conception of space and time?

Evolution of Mind and Brain
Dr. Anna Dornhaus is Assistant Professor, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona. Her lecture was given on March 9, 2010, as part of the College of Science Mind and Brain Lecture Series. http://cos.arizona.edu/mind/ What does anybody need a brain for? Brains are energetically expensive to make and to use, and susceptible to making mistakes. Accordingly, not learning, i.e. sticking to an innate or random strategy, is often the best thing to do. Still, humans and other animals display sophisticated learning and cognition. Recent research shows that each animal has specific learning abilities and lacks others according to its environment and evolutionary history. Understanding what different brains are used for can help us understand why they evolved.
