The Habitability of Icy Worlds
Start date: 05 Feb 2014
Address: Westin Pasadena, Pasadena, California, United States
The primary objective of this workshop will be to focus on the astrobiological potential of icy worlds in the outer Solar System - including Europa, Ganymede, Enceladus, Titan, and beyond - with discussion on future research directions and spacecraft missions that can best assess that potential. The agenda for the workshop will be organized around thematic sessions that address the potential habitability of the unique planetary environments of the outer Solar System. Presentations on research involving terrestrial analogs for icy world environments are also encouraged.
