Description

Set course to space and join W5 on Wednesday 6 November for an exciting conversation with NASA scientist Dr Sarah Noble!

Dr Noble will present on Lunar geology, past present and future! Followed by a conversation moderated by journalist Sarah Travers highlighting what was learned about the Moon from Apollo and more recent missions, and what future plans are, including what science we want to learn when we go back.

Dr Noble is a program scientist at NASA Headquarters. She earned her BS in Geology from the University of Minnesota and her MS and PhD in Geological Sciences from Brown University. Something of a “NASA nomad”, Dr Noble has also spent time at NASA JSC, NASA MSFC, and NASA GSFC, as well as a brief stint working for Congress. Her scientific research is on space weathering processes on the Moon and other airless bodies.

At HQ, she is the Program Scientist for the Psyche mission and runs several research and analysis programs, including PDART (Planetary Data Archiving, Restoration, and Tools) and SSERVI (Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute). She is currently working on finding payloads to send to the Moon’s surface through the Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) contract. Asteroid 133432 Sarahnoble is named in her honour.

This event is running on Wednesday 6 November in the Lecture Theatre at W5 from 5.30pm - 7.30pm. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are limited and online booking is essential. Refreshments will be served.

This event is part of the 2019 Science and Discovery Month at W5, a celebration of the NCAA Friendship Four Ice Hockey Tournament. For further information about the NCAA Friendship Four Tournament please visit friendshipfour.com
