EPO Activity: Public Lectures - Titan Panel Discussion: "Exploring Titan for Clues to the Origin of Life" at DMNS

Project Progress

Three scientists (Christophe Sotin, Bob West and Tom Orlando) from the NASA Astrobiology Institute (NAI) Titan research team shared updates on the atmosphere, surface, and geology of Saturn’s largest moon and what this research tells us about early Earth. This engaging evening was hosted and moderated by the Museum’s own David Grinspoon. Following the lecture, audience members mingled with the presenters and experts from the NASA Astrobiology Institute, answered questions and continued the discussion at a cash bar reception. The event was additionally recorded (http://vimeo.com/album/1891554/video/66416269) and live streamed on www.SAGANet.org
