‘Power of the Planet: Ice’ at Caltech March 17

Power of the Planet: Ice will be presented on Saturday, March 17, at 4 p.m. in Caltech’s Beckman Auditorium. This program is part of Caltech’s Science Saturdays series.
Ice may be nothing more than frozen water, but it holds extraordinary power. Descending deep down a frozen waterfall, this program looks at a glacier in action from below and discovers the huge Jacobshaven glacier is retreating, how it shaped our past and why it may now threaten our future. This is a BBC/National Geographic Channel US/ZDF co-production. Recommended for all ages.
Alex Robel, a Caltech Geological and Planetary Sciences NOAA Postdoctoral Scholar, will introduce the film and guide the post-screening discussion.
Tickets to this performance are priced at $10 (general admission). Tickets can be purchased at the Caltech ticket office, 1200 E. California Blvd., and at the Beckman Auditorium box office beginning one hour before the event.
Beckman Auditorium is located at 332 S. Michigan Ave. in Pasadena. For information, call the Caltech Ticket Office at (626) 395-4652.
