Teaching Space With NASA live stream promo graphic


Wednesday, May 12, 3-4 p.m. PSDT (6-7 p.m. EDT)



Target Audience:

Informal and formal educators (all audiences welcome)


As we learn more and more about our solar system from NASA's robotic and human explorers, we can't help but also seek to understand what lies beyond. Our solar system exists in a sea of countless solar systems across billions of galaxies. While we can't yet visit these distant worlds with robotic or human-led missions, we are beginning to get a better picture of them thanks to powerful telescopes and remote-sensing techniques that allow us to analyze their chemical signatures and more. Scientists are even discovering worlds that may be very similar to our own.

In this live, educational science talk, astrophysicist Vanessa Bailey will join education specialist Brandon Rodriguez to discuss how we search for and study planets beyond our solar system, called exoplanets, and what we're hoping to discover.

The presentation will include a live Q&A session and a short discussion for educators on how to bring this exciting science into the classroom with resources from NASA.
