Are We Alone? Cassini's Legacy: Saturn's Secrets Revealed

Trina Ray will highlight the most exciting discoveries of NASA's 20-Year mission to Saturn, including astrobiological discoveries from two of its 53 known moons. Ice-encrusted Enceladus, with its geyser-like jets spewing water vapor and ice particles from an underground ocean, has become a promising lead in our search of worlds where life could exist. And on Mercury-sized Titan, rippling sand dunes and hydrocarbon seas hide a liquid ocean of water and ammonia, both essential biological molecules.

The lecture by Trina Ray, scientist from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, was fabulous, intriguing and informative. I am surprised that students from the local high schools and College of the Desert are not attending these, free, educational scientific lectures. Kudos to Desert Hot Springs High School that did have several students in the audience.
