Jim Adams, recently retired Deputy Chief Technology Officer for NASA, will give a lecture at 7:00pm in room 112 of the Kern Building, on the topic, "The Search for Life Beyond Earth." Using NASA satellite photos and drawing on years of experience, Mr. Adams will share the latest findings on NASA's quest to discover life beyond our planet. Free and open to the public.
A free dinner will be served beforehand at 6:15pm in the Garden Room of the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center. After dinner, we'll simply walk over to the nearby Kern Building.
Mr. Adams has over 35 years of experience in aerospace engineering. In his 10 years at GE and 27 years at NASA, he has developed missions that have enabled scientists to rewrite textbooks on everything from climate change to the evolution of life in our solar system. These missions included probes to study the Sun, and missions to Mercury, Venus, Earth, the Moon, asteroids, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto.

Due to his experience, Mr. Adams has much to say on the search for life beyond earth. And with his Christian background, he has keen insights on how faith in God illuminates what we find in our exploration.
