Icy Worlds

December 3, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm



Description: Learn about the abundance of water we’ve found in the solar system, most commonly in solid form, and how these frigid but wet worlds are the top candidates for finding extraterrestrial life.

Instructor: Having a grandmother who worked on the Apollo Moon missions and growing up not far from the California Jet Propulsion Lab, it was natural for Zoe to earn BS degrees in astrophysics & math (U of Oklahoma, 2002), then attend grad school in planetary science at Cornell. During that time (2002 – 06) she worked on the science and mission critical operations teams for the Mars Exploration Rovers Mission. She is now the manager of the Spacecraft Planetary Imaging Facility (SPIF) and lives in Lansing with her husband and two daughters.
