von Kármán Lecture - Beyond the Pale Blue Dot: Seeing Distant Planets
- Public Event
On the 30th anniversary of the "Pale Blue Dot" image taken by NASA's Voyager mission, we'll look at the impact of that image and other distant views of Earth. We'll then turn to the quest to photograph another Earth—an exoplanet orbiting another star—as its own pale blue dot.
Join us for a discussion about perspective: the value of what a single pixel can tell us and what it can make us feel.
Von Kármán Lectures are presented twice monthly, once at JPL and once in Caltech's Beckman Auditorium, and are free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Online registration via Eventbrite is requested for the von Kármán Lectures held at Caltech. There is no online registration for von Kármán Lectures held at JPL.
