Taste of Science: It's All About Space!

Should we talk to the aliens?

Recently, a radio transmitter in Norway was used to broadcast a message to putative aliens a dozen light-years away.

Could this type of signaling expose us to existential danger from unknown beings, or is it merely an effort to provoke contact with other sentients?

Speaker: Seth Shostak, SETI Institute

Why aren't we already on Mars?

Heather has worked as contractor for NASA Johnson Space Center in 3 spaceflight simulations after passing the screening for astronaut training. 

In this talk she will discuss the micro-gravity spaceflight simulations designed to develop counter-measures for keeping astronauts healthy on long-duration interplanetary missions, such as those going to Mars!

Speaker: Heather Archuletta, NASA Johnson Space Center

Students push boundaries in Space Science Research

Wanted: Student leaders who have high ambition and excellent communication skills.

NASA hosts many research initiatives that target students of all ages, from high school to college and grad school and beyond. Even the general public has opportunities to participate. I'll talk about these programs and the people who run them.

Speaker: Camille Eddy, Google X
