Extraterrestrial Life. The Search For Habitable Worlds Beyond Earth.
NASA will host a teleconference at 11 a.m. EDT on Thursday, March 12, to discuss Hubble Space Telescope’s observations of Ganymede, Jupiter’s largest moon. These results will help scientists in the search for habitable worlds beyond Earth.
Participants in the teleconference will be:
Jim Green, director of Planetary Science, NASA Headquarters, Washington.
Joachim Saur, professor for geophysics, University of Cologne, Germany.
Jennifer Wiseman, Hubble senior project scientist, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland.
Heidi Hammel, executive vice president, Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy, Washington.
“The thing to keep in mind is that we’re still in the very early days when it comes to the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Saying there’s a silence is a bit like if Columbus, looking to discover a new continent, only sailed 10 miles off the coast of Spain before turning back to say, ‘Nothing out there!’ Seth Shostak.
