Science Night Live: Dr. Ellen Stofan: What Space Exploration Can Mean for Innovation on Earth Since 1969

NASA plans to send humans to Mars in the 2030s -- a monumental challenge. This will help us to discover if life ever evolved on the red planet and will also boost the economy and technological capacities (like Apollo did in the 1960s). In fact, getting to Mars may provide helpful solutions to problems here in the developing world -- issues around agriculture, irrigation, water purity, and rescue technology. Dr. Ellen Stofan is the former chief scientist at NASA (2013-2016), where she served as principal advisor to the NASA administrator on the agency’s science-related strategic planning and programs.

Science Night Live is Hofstra University’s public lecture series that features exciting science research presented by some of the top scientists and lecturers in their fields. Science is important in our everyday lives, and these timely lectures are sure to inspire and challenge us in unexpected ways.

Presented  by the Hofstra Cultural Center.
