Sunday Science Talk
I give a talk about ARTEMIS as part of the Sunday Science Talks series in the McMurdo Station Dining Hall. (photo: Justin Lawrence)
I gave the Sunday Science Lecture yesterday. Riding a wave of enthusiasm from Vickie’s talk last week, I talked about the ARTEMIS vehicle and how it fits into the SIMPLE astrobiology science mission. Bill provided nice solid model renderings to illustrate some of the vehicle concepts. Evan and I demoed the actual lighted docking bar during the talk. I really enjoyed giving the talk, and I was pleased by the enthusiastic audience participation when I asked questions like “who believes there is or was at some time life elsewhere in the universe?”
We will be doing another show-and-tell with ARTEMIS after dinner tonight.
