Event Description

Workshop on Thermodynamics, Disequilibrium and Evolution (TDE)

Presenter: Douglas Galante, CNPEM
When: September 24, 2014 5AM PDT

The 7th International Workshop on Thermodynamics, Disequilibrium and Evolution (TDE) aims to explore the relationship between biological and planetary systems, considering their dynamic aspects. The search for answers in this field must consider phenomena that are out of thermodynamic balance under natural environmental conditions. This approach is necessary for a better understanding of the chemistry and geochemistry involved in prebiotic processes, in the origin of life and in the subsequent gain in chemical complexity characteristic of self-sustained systems.

The challenges for studying these phenomena require interaction among several research areas, using an interdisciplinary approach, that is very characteristic of astrobiology. This field of research allows comprehensive studies of natural phenomena involved in the origin, evolution and distribution of life in the universe, considering their complex relations with planetary and astronomical environments.

Organized for the first time in Brazil, in partnership with the NASA Astrobiology Institute, this TDE workshop will bring together experts in this new field, in order to discuss experimental and theoretical approaches to constrain the scenarios of the origin of life on our planet, and to explore the possibilities of life arising on other places in the Universe.

The importance of this workshop will be emphasized by the keynote lecture, to be given by Nobel Laureate Ada Yonath.

¿Are the Venusian sulphuric acid clouds the by product of long dead anoxogenic photosynthetic organisms?

Posted by Andrew Planet on May 4, 2020 at 2:51pm 2 Comments

I just read the piece at the link below entitled "Study: Life might survive, and thrive, in a hydrogen world."

I'd been thinking on similar lines recently, on different atmospheres with early life, but I was considering anoxogenic bacteria whose byproduct is sulfur instead of molecular oxygen. ¿Had life evolved on Venus could its sulfuric clouds be the signature byproduct of such life with no branches ever evolving to produce the equivalent of Earth's Great…

100 years tomorrow 26th April 2020 since we looked beyond the Milky Way Galaxy

Posted by Andrew Planet on April 25, 2020 at 11:10am 0 Comments

Exactly 100 years ago tomorrow, the subject on whether this Universe is larger than the Milky Way Galaxy was brought up publicly at an event sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences, known as The Great Debate. Until then the Milky Way was thought to be this Universe.  Conference at the NAS http://www.nasonline.org/about-nas/events/annual-meeting/nas157/
