Virtual Exploration Experiences with Planetary Scientists (VEEPS)
The Lunar and Planetary Institute’s new public engagement program provides the opportunity to connect with planetary scientists from home! VEEPS are 30-minute online sessions that include a scientist’s presentation, a demonstration related to the topic, and some time for questions and discussion with the scientist.
Our most recent public VEEPS was on Tuesday, April 21 at 6:30 pm Central. During this early Earth Day event, Dr. William Stefanov, Manager of the Exploration Science Office within the Astromaterials Research and Exploration Science (ARES) Division at the Johnson Space Center, discussed Observing Earth From the International Space Station. Tina Harte, from NASA Langley Research Center, explained how you can contribute to Earth science through the GLOBE Observer app.
