September 2022 - Ocean Worlds Life Surveyor (OWLS)
Ocean Worlds Life Surveyor (OWLS)
Time: 7 p.m. PDT (10 p.m. EDT; 0300 UTC)
The Ocean Worlds Life Surveyor (OWLS) is the first life detection suite to explore a wide range of size scales, from single molecules to microscopic organisms, in a water sample. OWLS is an integrated, portable, and autonomous life-detection instrument suite designed to identify and characterize life on ocean worlds. In this talk, we'll discuss why autonomy is important for this and future missions.
