Great Crises in the History of Life

Prof Tim Flannery
 The Monash Science Centre has a new exhibition - Great Crises in the History of Life.  Tonight the exhibition was opened by Professor Tim Flannery, Chief Commissioner of the Australian Climate Commission and 2007 Australian of the Year.  Prof Flannery spoke about the importance of Science Education that allows students to explore, and how exhibitions like this one can contribute towards that.  Afterwards he was kind enough to answer a few questions, sign a few books and chat to some of the students and diggers.
