Media artist, SETI Institute artist-in-residence, and IAA SETI Permanent Committee member Daniela DePaulis does amazing work, and I have been excited to serve on her Advisory Team for the global theatrical performance A Sign in Space and to speak on the SETI Institute's channel during the live event. The (fake) signal has been sent! Go here if you'd like to learn more, and go here if you're ready to help decode the message!
I had a stellar time at the Oxygen in Planetary Atmospheres Workshop at the Green Bank Observatory. In addition to learning about the science of early Earth, presenting on astrobiology ethics, and serving on the public panel discussion on Astrobiology and the Human Experience, I also got to tour the amazing Green Bank Telescope!
