JWST: A Cosmic Time Machine for Astrobiology - Livestream


We are thrilled to announce an upcoming panel discussion that will take you on a journey to discover the secrets of our solar system and the search for life beyond our planet. Two scientists from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland - Dr. Stefanie Milam, astrophysicist and astrochemist, and Dr. Geronimo Villanueva, planetary scientist and astrobiologist - will participate in this mind-blowing exploration into the unknown. Communications specialist Beth Johnson will moderate the discussion.

What makes this topic exciting is the recent launch of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), the most powerful space telescope ever built. Dr. Milam and Dr. Villanueva will share their expertise on how this groundbreaking observatory will pave the way in the search for prebiotic chemistry, signatures of biology, and potential habitable worlds.

But it doesn't stop there. Our panelists will also explore some of the most promising targets for the search for life in our solar system: from the geysers of Enceladus, a small icy moon of Saturn, to Europa, Jupiter's moon believed to have a subsurface ocean of liquid water, and even to the potential for finding life on Titan, Saturn's moon with liquid methane and ethane lakes on its surface.

This event is a rare opportunity to learn from two of the most brilliant minds in space exploration and astrobiology. They will share their insights, perspectives, and the implications of such a discovery for our understanding of the universe and our place in it.
