Voyager Lecture Series, Presented by Rick Miller

April 5th @ 7:30 pm

$10 – $15

How Geology Made America Great

Lecture @ 7:30pm

Optional social hour with like-minded friends, light snacks and beverages @ 6:30pm


By the middle of the 20th century, the United States had become a leading industrialized nation. Amazingly enough, it only took about 2 billion years of geologic time, and a bit of luck, for this historic event to have come to fruition. Clearly there is a story here.
A combination of political, social and economic events is used to explain the rise of the United States into an industrial power. However, there is another factor that played a major role in this development. That factor is the geological history of North America, which provided a vast array of natural resources to support industrial development.
Distribution of natural resources in North America has played a major role in advancing the fortunes of the United States. Resources such as precious metals, rare earth elements, uranium, and others are abundant, but the initial industrial growth of the country was initially based on iron ore and coal. Geologic occurrence and distribution of these two resources and their proximity to one another played a pivotal role in the development of the United States of America.
