Space and Human Destiny (FREE!)

The final installment of our "Beyond Earth: Ethical and Political Choices in Space" Series
In this ongoing discussion moderated by David Grinspoon, PhD, the Museum invites you to consider with scientists, astronauts, ethicists, and policy makers the ethical and political implications of human space activities. Co-sponsored by the Secure World Foundation and the Center for Space Exploration Policy Research at Southwest Research Institute.

What are the long term consequences and implications of space exploration for the future of the human race? Does space hold the key to the future of life and intelligence? Can the move into space help humanity to survive? Come hear the thoughts of some of today's most visionary thinkers about space exploration, and participate in a discussion about the human future.

Tuesday's Panel will include:

Jill Tarter, PhD, director, Center for SETI Research at the SETI Institute, Mountain View, California. (Named by Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world; many people are now familiar with her work as portrayed by Jodie Foster in the movie Contact.)
Christopher McKay, PhD, Research Scientist at NASA Ames Research Center, astrobiologist, and influential writer/speaker on interplanetary bioethics.

Moderated by Dr. David Grinspoon, Curator of Astrobiology, DMNS
