(April 16, 7-9pm ET)
The 2012 FameLab Astrobiology Finals will be broadcast live on NASA TV as well as over the internet! FameLab Astrobiology is a science communication extravaganza! Over the past few months, more than 70 early career astrobiologists have gathered at sites across the USA (and on YouTube) to compete in FameLab Astrobiology preliminaries. Ten have emerged as finalists.
Each finalist will have just three minutes to convey a science topic to a general public audience. No slides, no charts – just the power of words and anything they can hold in their hands. These 10 have gone through two rounds of elimination to get to the finals. The winner will compete in the FameLab International final in the UK this summer. Tune in and support your favorites!
