Venus remains Earth’s enigmatic “sister,” potentially hiding secrets about the limits of habitability, loss of oceans, and extreme climate change. It has been decades since humanity last visited Venus’s massive atmosphere and reached its inhospitable surface. James Garvin, chief scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, will share how the foreboding Venus of today is poised to share its secrets in the upcoming decades as a new window on our solar system and beyond.
This program will be presented with live closed captioning.
