Is it turtles all the way down? Find out at this month’s Periodic Table, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, Sept. 19. ” On the backs of turtles” features guests Los Alamos National Laboratory archaeologist Cyler Conrad and isotope geochemist Jeremy Inglis.

Conrad, who focuses on human-animal and human-environment interaction, and Inglis, who specializes in ultra-low level isotope measurements, will answer questions about their team’s research on measuring legacy nuclear contamination in animals that grow sequential tissues — like turtles and their colorful shells.

Join them outside at Bathtub Row Brewing Co-op at 163 Central Park Square to hear about their initial results and the potential for future work with turtles and other long-lived organisms.

The Periodic Table is a monthly (weather permitting) outreach event organized by the Bradbury Science Museum.
