Prof. Jay Pasachoff will analyze scientific work at the last few total solar eclipses and how the ground-based coronal work links with the latest spacecraft observations to give the complete views of the solar atmosphere that are available only on the days of total eclipses.
This workshop will analyze how rapid progress in telerobotic technology might change the face of space exploration on the timescale foreseen for sending humans to Mars.
This workshop will establish a core group of researchers and technologists that will be likely to propose a future mission to the Martian polar regions.
The KISS workshop will be used to articulate a vision for coupled analysis of carbonyl sulfide (OCS) retrievals with satellite-based SIF and CO2 data, providing a new window into the carbon cycle and a revolution in our understanding of carbon-climate feedbacks and crop monitoring.
This KISS study is devoted to the question of accessing the subsurface oceans of icy worlds in order to explore these water oceans and to discover the presence of alien extant life. Two of those icy worlds, Europa and Enceladus, are believed to be the most likely places in the solar system where extraterrestrial life may be discovered.
