NASA Science Update on Europa Tomorrow


Europa, home to a subsurface ocean and thus one of the most habitable planets known, will be the subject of a press conference tomorrow. You can catch it on NASA TV at 1 PM EST (check local cable listings)… or online at:

You can see the announcement of the science update here:

Here’s who will be on the panel:

- Britney Schmidt, postdoctoral fellow, Institute for Geophysics, University of Texas at Austin
- Tori Hoehler, astrobiologist and senior research scientist, NASA’s Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif.
- Louise Prockter, planetary scientist, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Md.
- Tom Wagner, program scientist, cryospheric sciences, Earth Science Division, NASA Headquarters

I’ll be on a plane during this event, on my way to the Kavlie Frontiers of Science meeting, where I’ll be talking about astrobiology on a panel with Kevin Hand and Ray Jayawardhana. We’ll do our best to post some thoughts at some point tomorrow.
