ENCORE: NASA-JPL & the Search for Life in the Universe

Mar 20, 2021

3:00pm – 3:30pm CT

Have you looked at the night sky and wondered if we're alone? Do one or more of those points of light harbor life? The Jet Propulsion Laboratory — a research facility managed for NASA by Caltech — home to the interstellar Voyager spacecraft, all successful Mars rovers, and mission control for deep space, is tantalizingly close to technologies that can answer those big questions. In this featured session, go inside the lab with JPL center director Mike Watkins; take a virtual trip to Mars, icy moons and planets around other suns; and join the #SearchForLife.
