Astronomy Talk: Where I Explore, Where We Explore From The South Pole To Mars To Exoplanets


Guest Speaker:

Christine Moran

Deputy Manager

NASA Exoplanet Exploration Program, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Exploring is fundamental to being human, one of the cornerstones of why we do science, and why Dr. Moran has taken her personal career journey. What was it like living at the South Pole for almost a year? How do you prepare for an astronaut candidate interview? How do we see the echoes of the Big Bang from Earth? How might we discover life on Mars and among the stars? In this talk, Dr. Moran will give an overview of her scientific explorations on Earth, on Mars, and of worlds outside our solar system, putting her scientific work in the context of the search for another Earth.

W. M. Keck Observatory wishes to offer our deepest gratitude to our Astronomy Talk Series sponsors, Rob and Terry Ryan.
