SETI Institute Colloquium Series Available on YouTube
The SETI Institute is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to scientific research, education and public outreach. Its mission is to explore, understand and explain the origin, nature and prevalence of life in the universe.
The SETI Colloquium Series is a FREE lecture series which is open to the public and held from noon to 1pm, every Wednesday at the SETI Institute in California. For those who can't be there in person the SETI Institute has loaded over 100 of the presentations on YouTube.
The Colloquium Series presents the latest in planetary science. People who have attended public talks at VSSEC will recognise some of the speakers including Dr Adrian Brown, Dr Jennifer Heldmann and Dr Peter Jenniskens. For those who attended Dr Peter Jenniskens' talk at VSSEC prior to the Hayabusa capsule return you can watch him discuss the mission and some of the groups findings.
These presentations are a great way to make science come alive in the classroom. Join the Colloquium Series mailing list for updates. For other education resources produced by the SETI Institute visit www.seti.org/epo
