Is there life on Mars? What extraterrestrial life forms could be out there? It’s a question scientists have been trying to answer for centuries.
Dr. Max Coleman of the NASA Jet Propulsion Lab will present a lecture on the latest findings of possible extraterrestrial life forms on Mars and beyond Saturday, Feb. 4 at the Bidwell Forum.
Coleman is the principal scientist and senior research scientist at NASA Jet Propulsion Lab, Caltech. His research focuses on exploring life forms outside of Earth by detecting them through developing mineral biosignature approaches and instruments.
Coleman’s talk will focus on scientists’ definition of life, the conditions that sustain life on Earth and do those conditions exist on Mars and other planets. He will also talk about what ways are scientists today are exploring the possibility of otherworldly life forms and future explorations.
Coleman’s talk is part of a series of lectures presented by members of the JPL Speakers Bureau.
