Event Description

Welcome to the FameLab USA online competition!

Unlike our in-person events, this special heat of season 3 consists of online video submissions created and produced by Famelabbers like you. 

Please see below for a short, instructional video on how to best prepare your online video submission.  For text instructions, please go to our Video Tips page.  You only need to create one 3-minute video for now.

For tips on how to produce your video, check out this video tutorial: http://youtu.be/4OMMqNUjA00

All videos should be submitted before March 16th.  Please send the YouTube URL of your talk to daniella.m.scalice@nasa.gov.

Then join us on March 18th for a live, online judging event in which you and anyone you'd like to invite will meet with the judges (see below).  They will watch each video submission and give feedback directly to you!  Winners will be selected once all the videos have been seen.  If you have to miss the event, don't worry - we'll email you a clip of the feedback on your video.  Info on how to join this event will be emailed to you when you register.

Additional information such as judging criteria and other tips and hints can be found on the How It Works page. GOOD LUCK!


Meet Our FameLab Judges!


Judge #1: Lyl Tomlinson

Lyl Tomlinson is a PhD student in neuroscience at Stony Brook University, and a science communication fanatic who often asks: Would my grandma understand this?

¿Are the Venusian sulphuric acid clouds the by product of long dead anoxogenic photosynthetic organisms?

Posted by Andrew Planet on May 4, 2020 at 2:51pm 2 Comments

I just read the piece at the link below entitled "Study: Life might survive, and thrive, in a hydrogen world."

I'd been thinking on similar lines recently, on different atmospheres with early life, but I was considering anoxogenic bacteria whose byproduct is sulfur instead of molecular oxygen. ¿Had life evolved on Venus could its sulfuric clouds be the signature byproduct of such life with no branches ever evolving to produce the equivalent of Earth's Great…


100 years tomorrow 26th April 2020 since we looked beyond the Milky Way Galaxy

Exactly 100 years ago tomorrow, the subject on whether this Universe is larger than the Milky Way Galaxy was brought up publicly at an event sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences, known as The Great Debate. Until then the Milky Way was thought to be this Universe.  Conference at the NAS http://www.nasonline.org/about-nas/events/annual-meeting/nas157/
