Global Salon Series: Life and Science at McMurdo Station, Antarctica
Stars. Planets. Life. Where do they all come from? In 2011-2012 and again in 2015-2016, Dr. Jenna Kloosterman traveled to Antarctica with an international team of scientists to try to answer these questions. The team built and launched a balloon borne telescope designed to look at the atomic building blocks of the star formation process - carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen. Come experience the journey to McMurdo Station, what life is like there, and what is like to work on the launch of a scientific long duration balloon.

The Global Salon Series is brought to you by the USI Global Studies program. This series gets its name from the 17th century definition of a “salon,” a gathering where people come together to discuss and share knowledge of the social, cultural, political and philosophical ideas of the time.

Founded in 2011, the series focuses on current global issues, providing students and the community with a richer understanding of international and global issues, while giving USI faculty the opportunity to share their current research with the public. It is comprised of three to four lectures per semester featuring USI faculty and community figures.
