MEDIA REVIEWS
A fascinating and richly eventful tapestry of cosmic evolution... Eric Chaisson of Harvard University began... by compressing 18 billion years of cosmic history into a 30-minute overview, tantalizing his audience with a number of insights and observations. Lynn Margulis of Boston University gave a very lively presentation of the profound interrelationships and interdependence between life forms and the planetary environment. Philip Morrison of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology ended... with some philosophical reflections... We see here the merging of many disciplines and the coming together of many points of view-all of which lend strength to the enterprise. Enough has been learned to suggest strongly to many scientists that the rise of organic life, and probably of intelligence, may be an intrinsic part of cosmic evolution and not a mere accident of the earth's history. -Cosmic Search
