Plankton: "aliens" that may save us all

Neighborhood Science is presented in partnership with the University of Texas’ Science Under the Stars. Join us for interesting and thought-provoking talks from UT graduate students.

Plankton: the little alien-like creatures that might save us all

Speaker: Chase Rakowski

Is that an alien? Or is it just an Earthling that’s totally different from anything you’ve ever seen? Welcome to the world of plankton, the tiny living things found in almost every bit of water on Earth. You might never realize they’re there, but just a handful of natural water contains astonishing numbers, and life as we know it wouldn’t be possible without them. What’s more, they may hold the key to solving some of our biggest problems. Come see these little water-”aliens” in action and find out how important they really are!
