He’ll also discuss upcoming missions to measure changes to the Earth’s surface and ocean levels, explore Mars with a new rover, visit an all-metal asteroid, explore Europa (a moon of Jupiter), and look for planets around other stars.
The talk will also highlight the critical capabilities of NASA’s Deep Space Network and the work done at the site at Tidbinbilla outside Canberra.
