Time: Saturday, Dec 29, 2018 -

Location: Chabot Space & Science Center, Oakland, CA

Throughout history, human exploration has involved long distance travel, new technologies, and lots of advance planning. So it is with missions to Mars and searches for extraterrestrial life.   This special talk is linked with Chabot’s “Going the Distance theme– Our Reach into Space.”  

Dr. Margaret S. Race, Senior Scientist at the SETI Institute, will explain what’s involved in astrobiology and searches for ET life.   It takes LOTS MORE than just rocket scientists and astronauts.  You’ll be amazed at how many career paths are involved.
