The Earth is turning 6019 years on the 23rd October ... at least if one asks our dear friend Archbishop James Ussher and his calculations of the Bible.

We would like to celebrate his "very scientific" calculations with a Birth of the Earth pub on Friday 23rd October.

Just like the last couple of years, we will be offering free cake, while beverages of various kinds, chips/crisps, soup, etc., as usual, can be purchased from the bar.

As usual, all students, PhD students, professors and so on. in Geohuset are welcome to the pub.

Place: U1, Geovetenskapenshus
Date: 23rd October, the bar opens at 5pm.

See Facebook event for more information
