SXXpress passes for this session will be accepted at the preceding session, Hugh Forrest Welcoming Remarks, beginning at 9:15am

As we look around this world, we can find an infinite number of things to explore. Every corner we turn can be filled with curiosity and wonder. And the more we look, the more we can find possibilities that will inspire, spark ideas, and expand our understanding of worlds beyond Earth.

With a long history of sending inspirational messages out to the depths of space, it's only fitting that NASA’s Europa Clipper spacecraft launching in October 2024 will continue this tradition by including an engraved poem by US Poet Laureate Ada Limón. Come hear the poem as well as dive into the many ways science and art unite.
