Kepler’s Laws

23 May 2015

We are in the midst of a great die off. If humanity continues its industrial practices at their current rates, we could lose a quarter of the planet’s plant and animal species in the next hundred years. On our show today is Dr. Christy Tyler, an Associate Professor of Environmental Science at the Rochester Institute of Technology. She’s going to share with us all the ways biodiversity impacts life on Earth. In the second half of our show we’ll talk about the historical staying power of Kepler’s laws of planetary motion.
