Science Friday Presents #CephalopodWeek

Saturday, June 24, 2023
6:30 pm
*Requires Registration
Location | Space Center Theater
Doors open at 6 p.m.

What do marine invertebrate research and space exploration have in common? More than you might think! On Saturday, June 24, meet the Science Friday team at Space Center Houston for an unforgettable meeting of the minds. You’ll learn all about squid in space, how undersea and space exploration are similar and different, and what experts in spacefaring (AKA, spaceflight operations) and teuthology (that’s the study of cephalopods!) say they can learn from each other.

Come with your questions for Megan McArthur, an oceanographer, engineer, and NASA Astronaut, who spent 200 days in space conducting scientific research and technology demonstrations aboard the International Space Station, and is currently serving as the Chief Science Officer at Space Center Houston, and Diana Li, squid biologist and science communicator, who received her PhD in Biology from Stanford University researching squid locomotion, and is now Associate Director of Education & Training Initiatives at Columbia University’s Zuckerman Institute in New York City. Hosted by Science Friday’s Director of News and Audio, John Dankosky.

This event is presented in collaboration with our partners, Houston Public Media. By RSVPing for this event, you are signing up for newsletters from Science Friday, Space Center Houston and Houston Public Media. You can opt-out at any time.
