Seeing is believing, or so they say. GNS Science presents a new seminar series on unseen science that is helping shape the future direction of science in New Zealand. Join us on an adventure to find out about the science we can’t see!

Tiny does not always equate to insignificant… Microscopic organisms are one of the main reasons humans can inhabit the Earth. Sure, it took cyanobacteria about 3 billion years, but generating enough oxygen to build our atmosphere, thus allowing larger organisms to hang out in it, is not a trivial task after all.

When they are not busy making our planet habitable, micro-organisms go about their daily lives by learning to adapt to very specific conditions in the ocean.

Giuseppe Cortese (GNS Science) is a micro-paleontologist who uses the beautiful fossil remains of plankton (oceanic unicellular organisms) to learn about the past history of our planet, and some of the interesting changes it has undergone.
