Journey to Galapagos

NASA oceanographer Dr. Gene Carl Feldman is no stranger to the Galapagos Islands, although he has never been there. He has studied these "Enchanted Isles" from the vantage point of space for the last 25 years, but in July 2009 he will set foot on the islands for the first time. 2009 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin as well as the 150th anniversary of the publication of The Origin of Species. In celebration of these two events, the Charles Darwin Foundation is holding an international symposium to assess the current state of knowledge about this remarkable place, and has invited Dr. Feldman to present a paper on his perspective of the Galapagos.
