In partnership with the American Geophysical Union (celebrating its 100th anniversary this year), we present a panel discussion on the role of geosciences in the legacy of the Apollo missions and the future of the space program. Moderated by NASA Chief Scientist James L. Green, the panel will include Sean Solomon, director of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Sonia Tikoo, assistant professor at Stanford University, Steven Hauck, professor of planetary geodynamics at Case Western Reserve University, and Heather Meyer, postdoctoral fellow at the Lunar and Planetary Institute.

This program is made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of The Boeing Company.
