08 Sep Homo Naledi and the Rising Star cave by Marina Elliot Discovered deep in a cave in the Cradle of Humankind in September 2013, Homo naledi is the newest branch on the human family tree. Two short excavation periods recovered more than 1 500 remains of unprecedented quality and completeness. In addition, the nature of the deposit is unique and suggests that Homo naledi may have been engaging in a complex behaviour previously assumed to have been practiced only by modern humans. Dr Elliott was one of six "Underground Astronaunts" who excavated this remarkable find. She has continued to conduct research on the Homo naledi material as well as explorations and excavations in the Cradle of Humankind. In this lecture, Dr Elliott will share her experience of the Rising Star Expedition and describe what the research to date has learned about the biology and behaviour of Homo naledi.

12 Sep The Chemical Evolution of the Universe and the Origin of Life Speaker: Sandip Chakrabarti (S.N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences & Indian Centre for Space Physics). The Universe started with Energy and not Matter. As it expanded and cooled down, first the elementary particles and subsequently some simple nuclei such as proton, helium, lithium are formed. With further cooling, first atoms and then molecules were born. More complex nuclei were formed inside stars. Today we have complex living systems with extremely complex DNA molecule consisting of Adenine, Guanine, Cytosine and Thymine. Exactly at what stage such complex species were formed? If we look at the Star forming region, almost two hundred much simpler species having maximum of tens of atoms could be identified. How were they formed in frigid, tenuous interstellar medium? Could we expect DNA molecules also in space? These prospects are discussed in this lecture. CS302, Computer Science Building, Upper Campus, 16:00-17:00 Dr Álvaro de la Cruz-Dombriz
