President Greg Lineberry called to order meeting #5430 of the Rotary Club of Everett; meeting #28 of his presidency.  He then led the club in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Kaye Phinney read 5 Martin Luther King Jr quotes to honor Martin Luther King Jr. Day. He died at the age of 39. Two quotes which relate to Rotary are “The time is always right to do the right thing.” and “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”

PROGRAM: The Search for Habitable & Superhabitable Worlds in the Universe
Kari Petrasek introduced Dirk Schulze-Makuch. Dirk received his PhD at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Currently he resides in Berlin, Germany.
Dirk presented a great topic on Habitable Planets, but what is habitable? Earth is habitable for Home sapiens, Great White Shark and Acidianus infernus.
Planetary Habitability Index includes (S) Stable substrate, (E) Available energy, (C) Appropriate chemistry and (L) liquid solvent.
Dirk explained each of the Planetary Habitability Index. He talked about Earth Similarity vs Planetary Habitability. He discussed “Could there be planets more habitable than Earth?”
Dirk described the G-Type star (Yellow Dwarf), K-Type star (Orange Dwarf) and M-Type star (Red Dwarf). He explained the advantages of the K star.
Additionally, he discussed the Cosmic Zoo Hypothesis. If stably habitable planets are common, life on those planets will develop complex forms.
There are three major paths toward innovation. They paths are Critical Path Model, Random Walk Model, and Many Paths Model.
His presentation was very informative and thought-provoking which the log reporter was listening intently rather than taking notes. A great program.
President Greg thanked Dirk and informed him that a donation was being made in his name to Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County.
