Otherworldly Oceans

The ultimate frontier for ocean research may lie outside our own planet. Dr. Mary Voytek, Senior Scientist for Astrobiology at NASA, explores the possibility of discovering life on Jupiter's moon Europa, using stunning images from U.S. spacecraft and data from extreme environments on Earth--including the Chesapeake Bay Impact Crater. Voytek, a microbial ecologist, has worked in extreme environments from Antarctica and the Arctic to hypersaline lakes and deep-sea hydrothermal vents.

The lecture is the final installment of the 2015 After Hours series, which helps mark VIMS' 75th anniversary with presentations following the "Then, Now, and Next" theme of our year-long celebration.
