Latest Project Scientist News | Project Scientist for Mars Perseverance Continues Caltech’s Lecture Series

Mar 4, 2021 | Project Scientist for Mars Perseverance Continues Caltech’s Lecture Series santaclarita 17 mins ago Ken Farley, a professor of geochemistry at the WM Keck Foundation, a project scientist at the Mars 2020 mission in the Department of Geological and Planetary Sciences, continues the Watson lecture season from 2020 to 2021 on March 10 on “Mars’ patience.” I will give a lecture on Wednesday. At 5 pm, via zoom. After eight years of development at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the Perseverance Rover landed on Mars on February 18, 2021. In this Watson lecture, Farley explains how this highly capable rover investigates rocks deposited billions of years ago. A large lake (since it disappeared), seeking evidence of the potential of Mars’ life at the time. He will also look at how the rocks carefully collected by Perseverance during these expeditions provide cargo for the first effort to return samples from another planet to Earth. Farley has been a faculty member at the California Institute of Technology since 1993. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from Yale University in 1986 and a PhD from the National Science Foundation at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego. Prior to coming to the California Institute of Technology, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Rochester and the Lamont Doherty Geological Observatory. Farley became director of the California Institute of Technology Tectonics Observatory from 2003 to 2004 and chaired GPS from 2004 to 2014. He is a Fellow of the Geochemical Society of Japan and the Geochemical Society of Japan and an elected member of the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences. Of art and science. Farley has been leading NASA’s Mars 2020 Rover mission as a project scientist since 2013. Farley’s Watson lectures are open to the public for free. Pre-registration is necessary. The lecture begins at 5 pm and lasts about 45 minutes, followed by an audience question and answer session with Farley. After the live webinar, the lectures (without Q & A) will be available on demand on YouTube at the California Institute of Technology. channel .. Since 1922, Earnest C. Watson Lectures has published the most innovative scientific research at the California Institute of Technology to the public. The series is named after Ernest C. Watson, a professor of physics at the California Institute of Technology from 1919 to 1959. Focusing on pioneering research choices currently underway at the California Institute of Technology, the Watson Lecture is aimed at the general public as part of the institute’s ongoing efforts. To benefit the community through education and outreach. Through a gift from Richard C. Bidebach’s property, the lecture series has expanded to focus on the study of one assistant professor each season. Watson Lectures is part of the Caltech Signature Lectures presented by Caltech Public Programming, which delves into groundbreaking research and scientific discoveries at Caltech and JPL.
