Evolution of life on Earth may hold key to finding life in outer space

ry bodies, including Mars.

Fox earned his bachelor's degree and his doctorate in chemical engineering from Syracuse University. Coming to UH in 1977, Fox has held numerous positions and, in addition to being a professor of biology and biochemistry in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, he is an adjunct professor of chemical engineering in the Cullen College of Engineering. The author or co-author of more than 110 peer-reviewed publications, Fox has received numerous honors and awards for his research. He is an elected fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering. As a postdoctoral researcher with Carl Woese at the University of Illinois, Fox was involved in discovering the existence of a third kingdom of life now known as the Archaea. This discovery is regarded as one of the major breakthroughs in biology in the last 100 years.

A combined UH/NASA night with two free screenings of "Fantasy Worlds" for UH students, faculty and staff and NASA employees will be held 6 to 8 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 23, at the museum. Otherwise, tickets for the show are $5 for adults, $3.50 for children (3-11) and seniors (62+) and $3 for Museum Members. For tickets information, visit www.hmns.org or call 713-639-4629.
