Our guests are Dr. Stephanie Getty from the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and Dr. Richard Quinn from the NASA Ames Research Center. This week we will be discussing the process of developing scientific instruments for the search for life beyond Earth. Drs. Getty and Quinn have been on numerous instrument and mission development teams ranging from the Mars Science Laboratory to future missions like Europa Clipper and DAVINCI. They are also on the organizing committee of an ongoing workshop from NASA called the Future of the Search for Life (FoSL), which has brought together researchers and technologists to talk about the synergies in technology development and life detection science.
