ICS co-hire Eric Ford weighs in on report by National Academies of SciencesPosted on November 8, 2018
Eric Ford, professor of astronomy and astrophysics, Institute for CyberScience co-hire and director of the Center for Exoplanets and Habitable Worlds (CEHW) at Penn State spoke on the report created by the National Academies of Sciences, which was released in early September. The report said in order to answer significant questions about planetary systems, such as whether our solar system is a rare phenomenon or if life exists on planets other than Earth, NASA should lead a large direct imaging mission — an advanced space telescope — capable of studying Earth-like exoplanets orbiting stars similar to the sun.
