Lecture: Living on the Moon and Mars

  • 29 Oct 2020
  • 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
  • Da Shop


Ancient explorers navigated the oceans, like astronauts are now navigating into space. Astronauts are the modern explorers enlarging our horizons. Is it possible to live on the Moon or Mars? How will a moon village look like? What are the steps for the next human space exploration? Since 2011 the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) detector has been operating on board of the International Space Station and providing valuable data to NASA. AMS may be the key for future human explorations to the Moon and Mars.

Dr. Veronica Bindi is an Associate Professor in Physics at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Her academic interests include the study of Dark Matter, Cosmic Rays, Space weather, and Space Radiation. Dr. Bindi has been part of the CERN team in Switzerland, which led to the construction of the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS). With her team, she is currently analyzing the AMS data in order to solve major challenges for human exploration to the Moon and Mars. In 2013, she was featured in the Women Inspiring Europe by the European Institute for Gender Equality. She has just returned to Hawaii, after a year at the NASA Science Mission Directorate.
