Tullis Onstott of NAI’s Indiana-Princeton-Tennessee team was recently named to this year’s “Time 100,” an annual list of “the 100 men and women whose power, talent or moral example is transforming the world,” according to list-maker Time magazine. Onstott, a professor of geomicrobiology in the Department of Geosciences at Princeton University, investigates the physical and chemical limitations on subsurface Earth life, toward developing subsurface life detection strategies for Mars.,28804,1595326_1595329_1615985,00.html
Additionally, Don Canfield of the NAI NASA Ames Research Center team was elected last week to the National Academy of Sciences. Canfield is professor of ecology with the Institute of Biology and director of the Nordic Center for Earth Evolution at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense. His work focuses on biosignatures in chemosynthetic and photosynthetic systems.
