His Serene Highness, Prince Albert II of Monaco will visit MIT today to speak to students and faculty about environmental and energy issues as part of a growing collaboration between MIT and Monaco.
The prince will be featuring his film, Antarctica 2009: A Continent in a State of Alert, from 4-5:30 p.m. in Room 10-250 and will remark about his 17-day trek to meet researchers and to learn about the scientific projects being conducted in Antarctica. His journey was facilitated in response to an invitation by the scientific community to "bring Antarctic Science to the public eye," according to Jose Retamales, Director of the Chilean Polar Institute.
