Furaha in the Cheltenham Science Festival

The Cheltenham Science Festival in the UK runs from June 2 to June 7 and is held in, well, Cheltenham. What you might like to know is that Furaha will feature briefly in it. On Thursday 4 June at 18:00 hrs Lewis Dartnell will speak about 'Alien evolution'. Lewis is an astrobiology researcher at University College in London. Here is his website. He has written a book on astrobiology: Life in the Universe, a Beginner's Guide. Here is the text from the website regarding the talk:

"How might the human body evolve if forced to live with the weightlessness of space stations or in habitats on the Moon or Mars? And how might Darwin’s natural selection have played-out for the plants and animals we may one day encounter in other worlds? Lewis Dartnell shows you the real face of ET and explores the fascinating realm where evolutionary biology meets exotic worlds!"

And what part of that means is that he will show a few images of Furahan life as examples of evolutionary routes not taken on Earth. If you are in the area, why not have a look?
