NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC LIVE! KEVIN HAND: The Search for Life Beyond Earth

  • Location:Seattle, WA
  • Venue:Benaroya Hall
  • Length:All Day

Astrobiologist and National Geographic Emerging Explorer KEVIN HAND is searching for life beyond Earth—a search which has taken him to some of Earth’s most extreme environments to study how life can persist under hostile conditions. On May 4-6, get the scoop from this NASA researcher on the search for real extraterrestrials.

Based at Pasadena’s world-famous Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Hand is designing instruments for the probe that will travel to Europa. To gain perspective on the conditions these instruments will have to endure, and to see how microbes eke out a living in our world’s harshest climes, Hand has traveled to the most forbidding environments on Earth. He has conducted studies on the glaciers of Mount Kilimanjaro, the valleys of Antarctica, and the depths of our oceans.

Join Hand for a firsthand report on the ongoing search for life on other worlds.

There will be multiple showings from May 4th thru May 6th
