Additional Information

Dr. William Borucki, Principal Investigator of the Kepler Mission will present a public lecture.

The Kepler Mission has revolutionized our knowledge of the cosmos by demonstrating that most stars have planets. For the first time in the history of humankind, we know that there are billions of planets in the Milky Way Galaxy. Many of these planets may be Earth-like, which dramatically affects our understanding of the prospects of life elsewhere.

Dr. Borucki has devoted over 30 years of his career to design this mission, lead the investigation, and report the results. He will explain how the Kepler Mission was conceived, why it was so successful, and how it transformed our view of the universe.
