    WHOI Hosts Public Event Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Discovery of Deep-Sea Hot Springs

    Ballard will be the keynote speaker at a free public forum, hosted by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) as part of the Morss Colloquia series, recapitulating the discovery of hydrothermal vent life 40 years ago on the Galápagos Rift near Galápagos Islands in the Pacific Ocean. The event will be held 6 to 8 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 27, 2017 in the Lillie Auditorium, 7 MBL Street, Woods Hole; it also includes a discussion afterward by a panel of scientists on current and future research on chemosynthetic life forms, which live on chemicals in the absence of sunlight—on Earth and possibly on other planetary bodies.
