Teen Science Cafe: Searching for Earth 2.0 and other Worlds

June 5, 2020 @ 5:00 pm 6:00 pm

Is there another world out there suitable for humans? How are humans exploring space to find these worlds and how do they determine their viability? Chat more about these questions and more during a very special Teen Science Cafe with Charlotte Minsky.

About Charlotte: Charlotte is a recent graduate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology studying planetary science and the history of science. Her research focuses on extrasolar planets – planets orbiting stars outside our solar system – and how to find and characterize them so that we can better understand all planets and look for potential signs of life. Next year, she will be pursuing an MPhil in the History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine at the University of Cambridge, followed by a PhD in Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard University.
