EPO Activity: Deep Sea Vents Interactive Astrobiology Kiosk and Poster
A portable, interactive version of the award-winning poster, Astrobiology: Discovering New Worlds of Life (published in 2002), was produced in 2003. The kiosk is available to all members of the NAI scientific and education and public outreach (E/PO) teams to be displayed at conferences, schools, universities, and public lectures, as well as museums, science centers, and libraries for public display on a rotational basis. Between January 2010 and April 2011, the kiosk was on display alongside the NAI-sponsored exhibit “Beyond the Edge of the Sea” at Pennsylvania State University. It was then on display at the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore from April through September 2011. Thousands of the CIW poster Astrobiology: Discovering New Worlds of Life have been distributed to kiosk visitors.
