Every month, the American Museum of Natural History hosts SciCafe, inviting experts from all scientific fields to share their research. Many of these experts are AMNH staff. On the museum's YouTube channel, visitors can watch lectures featured during previous SciCafe events. As of this write-up, the collection contains 38 lectures - most are approximately 30 minutes in length. These lectures include a discussion about the ethics of reversing extinction by AMNH curator Ross MacPhee; an explanation of the role that plants played in human evolution by anthropologist Fatimah Jackson; and an exploration of the enduring question, "Are we alone in the universe?" by astrophysicist Lisa Kaltenegger.
