Dear Annapolis Cafe Scientifique Patrons,

We are full for the talk on 4.25, with a waiting list of over 12; if you reserved a seat and do not plan to come, please release your seats; thanks!

Also, we are going to try to move our mailing list to mailchimp; if any of youi have experience with it, let us know. To do this, we need to clean up the database first.


Please join us tomorrow, Thursday, April 25, at 6:15pm at 49 West for: Deep Ocean Exploration, by Dr. Emil Petruncio 


Abstract: We are in a new age of exploration which involves the mapping and characterization of the seafloor and water column of the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone and other high priority areas, and attaining new knowledge in the areas of climate science, energy and minerals, human health, ocean health, and marine archeology. Discoveries in these areas will be aided by the convergence of several key technologies: seafloor mapping with multibeam sonar, exploration with remotely operated and autonomous underwater vehicles, and telepresence through fiber optic and satellite links between ship and shore. Examples of these technologies and their applications will be drawn from expeditions of the Exploration Vessel Nautilus, which is operated by Dr. Robert Ballard and the Ocean Exploration Trust. Special topics will include deep sea hydrothermal vents and past, present, and future sea level rise.


About the Speaker: Dr. Emil Petruncio received a BS in Oceanography from the U.S. Naval Academy and a Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA.  He served on active duty in the Navy for 32 years as a Surface Warfare Officer, Oceanographer, and Permanent Military Professor.  Since 2013, he has supported the Ocean Exploration Trust part-time as a navigator and expedition leader aboard the Exploration Vessel Nautilus, conducting seafloor mapping and deep ocean exploration in the Caribbean Sea and Eastern Pacific Ocean.


And next month, on Thursday, May 30 at 6:15pm, please join us for “The Science of Anti-aging: Hype or Hope”

by Edward R McDevitt, M.D., CAPT MC USN-R, Team Physician US Naval AcademyAnnapolis Hand Center


Abstract: Due to advances in medicine technology, people are living longer today than ever before. However, living long does not always mean LivingWell. This presentation we will look at the scientific basis for some of the claims that are made to help you age as wonderfully as possible. We will learn the truth and the adage from the ancient Greeks that “let food be your medicine and medicine be your food.”  We will discuss the latest advances in exercise physiology that promote the advantage of high intensity interval training for exercise as we age. Time will be left for discussion.
