Ongoing Opportunities for Scientist Engagement with LPI

Cosmic Explorations Speaker Series at LPI

Since 2009, the Cosmic Explorations Speaker Series program has invited scientists from across the country to present their science to the public in the Clear Lake region of Houston. Presentations in a series are tied together by a central theme in the space sciences and each series consists of four or five presentations. Presentations take place on Thursday evenings and are followed by a light reception. Depending on the speaker’s research, they may also be invited to present a science seminar the following day for LPI and JSC scientists. If you would like to be considered to give a public presentation at LPI, please contact Andy Shaner.
