Upcoming Virtual Event – Oceans Beyond Earth: From Earth’s Deep Ocean to the Search for Extraterrestrial Life

September 16, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Earth’s ocean is essential to life and may have even given rise to life on our planet billions of years ago. We now know that vast oceans of liquid water also exist beneath the icy shells of moons in our own solar system. These ocean worlds provide compelling targets in the search for extraterrestrial life, perhaps within the next human generation. Join us for a stimulating discussion of how the exploration of the depths of our ocean can help inform the search for life beyond Earth.

Speakers: Lunar and Planetary Institute astrobiologist and geomicrobiologist Kennda Lynch, WHOI marine microbiologist Julie Huber, WHOI marine geoscientist Chris German, and special guest, comedian Eugene Mirman
