Upcoming Virtual Events from NASA-JPL Edu
Join us online in May to learn about NASA's search for habitable worlds beyond Earth 
NASA-JPL Edu Virtual Events - May 2021

Did you know that scientists have discovered thousands of planets outside of our solar system known as exoplanets? Some of these worlds might even have the right conditions to sustain life. Join us online in May to hear from NASA experts leading research into these distant planets and the search for habitable worlds beyond Earth. Plus, we'll answer your questions and share educational resources you can use to bring this exciting NASA science to students. Participation for some events is limited – register today!
