WATER IN SPACE
Is Earth the unique "water world" of our solar system?
Are there more hidden seas awaiting our discovery on a nearby planet?
Jupiter's moon Europa, seems to hold an ice-capped global ocean greater than all of our seas combined.
The Orion Nebula produces enough water each day to fill Earth's oceans 60-times over. What can we learn of our own origins in a cosmic cloud of dust and water?
Is the quest to discover extraterrestrial life best achieved by dowsing for water with telescopes and robots?
(And just how important are water-laden meteors for life on earth and rest of the universe?)
What is yet to be uncovered about the role of water in the universe?
Astrobiologist David Grinspoon has dedicated his life to exploring such questions and more. The Home for Water and coming New York Museum of Water are proud to invite you to share an evening with this creative thinker and Carl Sagan Medal-winning author of "Venus Revealed" and "Lonely Planets: A Natural Philosophy of Alien Life," who plays a leading role in the Venus Express mission of the European Space Agency, and a coming NASA rover mission to Mars.
