Penelope Boston on Subsurface Astrobiology: Cave Habitat on Earth, Mars, and BeyondJanuary 27, 2017 / Posted by: Miki Huynh
In the summer of 2016, Penny Boston, Director of the NASA Astrobiology Institute (NAI), presented the seminar, Subsurface Astrobiology: Cave Habitat on Earth, Mars, and Beyond at NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, CA. She talked about her past work exploring and studying caves around the world, where the extreme subsurface conditions and the discovered microbial life forms held possible clues for future Mars exploration and the search for life in our solar system.
Boston’s talk is part of the annual NASA Ames Summer Series, which invites subject leaders from around the world to present science and technology discoveries, innovations, missions, and more.
