Untold Tides: the Surprising Influence of the Tides in Human Affairs, with Mark Borton
Tides are caused by the gravitational attraction of the moon and the sun, and affect everything on earth, not just the oceans.

NLMS member Mark Borton has been researching the influence of the tides for a decade and will present two illustrated talks on the causes and consequences of the tides.

The first talk, on June 14, will focus on the 2,500 year effort to solve the riddle of the tides, which involved many of history's greatest thinkers, including Aristotle, Socrates, Copernicus, Keppler, Galileo, Descartes, Newton, Darwin and Einstein.

The second talk, on June 28, will reveal some of the hidden influences of the tides on love, war, money, and more.


2 Thursday early evenings -- 6-7 PM. Talk, wine & cheese, then we suggest you go have dinner in downtown New London!
