Symposium on Climate Change

The 2019 Symposium of the Consortium for Space Genetics will be dedicated to Earth because, after all, Earth is in Space. Its focus will be climate change and the potential of genetic technologies to halt or reverse it, ameliorate the consequences of it, and prepare the living world for the extreme conditions that will arise because of it. Indeed, many of the leaders who have spearheaded humanity’s exploration of Space are now diverting their attention to Earth. Please join us. It will be an important melding of minds. Registration is required. 

Speakers include:

Dava Newman: Former Deputy Administrator of NASA, Obama Administration; Professor, Aeronautics and Astronautics, MIT
Joanna Haigh: Atmospheric physicist; Grantham Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, Imperial College, London
Rebecca Henderson: Expert on the intersection of climate change and business; Professor, Harvard Business School
Christopher Mason: Geneticist of the NASA Twin Study; Professor, Weill Cornell Medical College
AdamSteltzner: Lead engineer, Mars Science Laboratory EDL (Entry, Descent, Landing); Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA
