Event Notes

× National Geographic Live: "Life on Other Worlds" with Kobie Boykins & Kevin Hand

How close are we to discovering life on other planets? NASA’s latest rover will land on Mars in 2021 to search for signs of ancient life. Jupiter’s moon Europa is home to a vast subsurface ocean, which could sustain primitive life forms nearly 600 million miles from Earth. Join two of NASA’s leading researchers as they share cutting-edge technology and up-to-the-minute information about their exploration for answers.

Kobie Boykins, a mechanical engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California, has worked on breakthrough projects from the Pathfinder mission to the Mars Exploration Rovers discovering the vast frontiers of space. Kevin Peter Hand, a planetary scientist and astrobiologist at JPL, has worked from the depths of Earth’s oceans to the summit of Kilimanjaro in search of answers.

The 60-minute virtual event will include short pre-recorded stories and live, moderated conversations with opportunities for audience Q&A.
