Exploring the Earth and Cosmos: A Study of Western Civilization

Dr. Hans Mark - Lecture April 28, 2014

Dr. Hans Mark

John J. McKetta Centennial Energy Chair in Engineering, University of Texas at Austin.

Western history has been one of restless expansion, a pushing out of boundaries both intellectual and geographical. Western exploration has encompassed both heaven and earth, improvements in celestial observation facilitating global navigation and discovery. From the Portuguese voyages into the South Atlantic during the fifteenth century, to trips to the Moon in the twentieth, Western science and Western exploration have gone hand-in-hand.

Dr. Mark’s lecture was held in the Escondido Theatre at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX, April 28, 2014.
