Join us for a LIVE one-hour event with SAGANet Scientist-Mentor and NASA Research Scientist Morgan Cable on SAGANLive!
Morgan Cable is a Research Scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. She earned her Ph.D. In Chemistry from the California Institute of Technology in 2010, where she investigated life in extreme environments. Her current work focuses on organic and biomarker detection strategies, through both in situ and remote sensing techniques. In her free time, Morgan enjoys surfing and mountain unicycling.
Talk Title: Exploring Icy Worlds
Many of the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, called Icy Worlds, have crusts of ice encasing subsurface liquid water oceans. These Icy Worlds have all three ingredients necessary to life as we know it – water, energy, and chemistry. At JPL we are doing work both in the laboratory and in the field to better understand these Icy Worlds, and whether life may have existed there, or might even be present today.
About the "Mentor of the Month" series on SAGANet: SAGANet is not just a social network, but also a hub for scientists to engage with the public through our e-mentoring programs. Each month, we feature one of our international cohort of scientist-mentors with a special one-hour event highlighting their scientific and/or public engagement activities.
