Eastern Illinois University’s Department of Geology and Geography has the honor of pre-screening a new docu-series by National Geographic entitled, “One Strange Rock.” It is a “mind bending, thrilling journey that explored the fragility and wonder of planet Earth – one of the most peculiar, unique places in the universe.” Narrated by Will Smith, it features perspectives from 10 astronauts on the wonders of the Earth as seen from space. Our pre-screening will be on March 8th, 12:30 – 2:00 in the Physical Science Building, room 3040. Light refreshments provided. Nationwide broadcast will be on March 26th.
