Planetary Geologist

The worlds of our solar system are far apart, yet some are connected by two themes: life and climate. Each of them holds key information to Earth’s past, present and future. DR. ELLEN STOFAN believes Earth is our best guide as we look for life on other planets. Can you envision a time in the not-so-distant future where we live off the land…but the land is on Mars? Where we set sail on the ocean worlds of the outer solar system, looking for life? What would it take for you to be Earth-independent? A world-renowned expert in human exploration and a former chief scientist of NASA, featured in National Geographic’s critically acclaimed series, “Mars,” Dr. Stofan shares her vision of the next decade of space travel.

Dr. Stofan is the former Chief Scientist of NASA (2013-2016), serving as principal advisor to the NASA Administrator on the agency’s science-related strategic planning and programs and is a Senior Scientist Consultant at the Applied Physics Laboratory, Johns Hopkins University, an Honorary Professor in the Department of Earth Sciences at University College London, and co-chair of the World Economic Forum Future of Space Technologies Council. Her research focuses on the geology of Venus, Mars, Saturn’s moon Titan, and Earth.

Presented in partnership with Five Rivers MetroParks.
