Pale Rainbow Dots: The Search for Other Earths with Drs. Arney and Domagal-Goldman

Agenda


Wednesday, October 25


6:30 pm EDT Pale Rainbow Dots: The Search for Other Earths with Drs. Arney and Domagal-Goldman
What does it mean to be a habitable planet? How can we find life if it's truly "alien" and different from life on Earth? And what techniques can we use to search for life on worlds orbiting distant stars? Drs. Arney and Domagal-Goldman will discuss the science behind these questions and the future telescopes that may provide the answers.

Bios: Drs. Giada Arney and Shawn Domagal-Goldman, Astrobiologists, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center

#OtherEarths

The Capital Science Evenings are made possible with support from Margaret & Will Hearst and Whole Earth Films.

About Carnegie Institution for Science


Founded in 1902 by Andrew Carnegie, the Carnegie Institution for Science is an endowed, independent, nonprofit institution headquartered in Washington, D.C. Carnegie's intention was for the institution to be home to exceptional individuals—men and women with imagination and extraordinary dedication capable of working at the cutting edge of their fields. Since its inception, Carnegie Science has earned a reputation for world-class, paradigm-shifting scientific research. 

Carnegie Science investigators study space, Earth, and life at campuses on both coasts and in Chile. They are leaders in the fields of plant biology, developmental biology, Earth & planetary science, astronomy, and global ecology. They seek answers to questions about the structure of the universe; the formation of our Solar System and other planetary systems; the transformation of matter under extreme conditions; the origin of life; the effects of climate change; the function of plant, animal, and microbial genomes; and the development of organisms from single-celled eggs to adults. In addition to research, the Institution is invested in increasing public understanding of science through education, outreach, communication, and engagement.
