NASA Astrobiology Institute At 20

Join us on November 14, 2019 8:30AM – 5:00PM PST to celebrate the NASA Astrobiology Institute (NAI) at 20. As the NAI completes its 20-year tenure, we remember the origin of astrobiology, the impact of the NAI to the field of astrobiology, share the current development of the field, and discuss the future direction of astrobiology at NASA, the Ames Research Center, and the broader community.

The Astrobiology Science Forum will highlight Ames’ exobiology and astrobiology enterprise, NASA’s role as the host of the NAI; and share how the field has influenced and changed planetary science missions, trained the next generations of astrobiologists, and built a strong community of passionate researchers.

The NAI has established a solid foundation for NASA and Ames to embark vigorously on the next chapter of Astrobiology/Exobiology and to continue the revolutionary discoveries that have and will develop in this thriving field.
