Keeping the community up to date on timely events, new research developments, and emerging trends is a priority. These talks are not topically related, but are presented here as a special collection.

Subscribe to this series Early Career Seminars

As a way to build community, this seminar series provided an opportunity for early career astrobiologists to share their work with one another and with the astrobiology community at large.

Subscribe to this series GSFC Summer Internship

Each year, summer interns at the NAI’s Goddard Center for Astrobiology present their work. Via collaborative technologies, they are able to present to the entire astrobiology community—adding an important dimension to their educational experience.

The NASA Astrobiology Program is conducting research around the globe, developing unique instruments to investigate some of Earth’s most remote and extreme environments in the search for life. Not only are they are expanding the knowledge we have of our planet; they are building and testing tools, systems and technologies for future NASA missions.

In this series of videos, meet the researchers and learn about their work in unique and dramatic areas on Planet Earth.

Subscribe to this series Big Picture Science

The Big Picture Science radio show and podcast engages the public with astrobiology through lively and intelligent storytelling. Science radio doesn’t have to be dull. The only dry thing about our program is the humor. Big Picture Science takes on big questions by interviewing leading researchers and weaving together their stories of discovery in a clever and off-kilter narrative style.

Subscribe to this series Year of the Solar System

While NASA celebrates 50 years of Solar System exploration in 2012, the last two of those years saw an unprecedented cluster of activity. From comet and asteroid encounters to landing an analytical chemistry laboratory on the surface of Mars, we have dared and learned much. Throughout it all, fundamental research has provided the foundation and impetus for exploration. These talks give the state of the art in astrobiology research in 2012.
