Woods Lecture Series: Penelope Boston
The subsurface of Earth, as visible in caves and mines, is home to a vast array of extremely unusual microorganisms. Penelope Boston and other astrobiologists are studying these environments to use as templates to help us prepare fro the hunt for life on other planets in the Solar System, and on exoplanets around other stars. Dr. Boston is the Director for NASA Astrobiology Institute and earned her PhD from the University of Colorado, Boulder, in microbiology and atmospheric chemistry.
