Scientist Sy Gonzales will present an overview on Sunday of what will happen in the future as our sun begins to age and deplete its nuclear fuel.

The Central Colorado Humanists Sunday Science program will begin at 10 a.m. at the Salida Rotary Scout Hut, 210 E. Sackett Ave. Doors open at 9:30 a.m.

Gonzales will examine the study of the past of Earth, estimated to be more than 4½ billion years old, as well as look at the deep future of the sun and our planet, based on the latest scientific advances, a press release stated.

He will discuss topics including what Earth’s future geography may look like, whether our disappearing glaciers will ever return and related subjects.

Gonzales is a retired mathematician and computer scientist. He holds degrees in applied mathematics, mathematics and computer science and developed engineering software during a 35-year career.

Discussion and light refreshments will follow the talk.
