Candice Hansen-Koharcheck, Planetary Science Institute

The Exploration of Ocean Worlds

In 2005 data from the Cassini spacecraft, in orbit around Saturn, showed giant jets of water spurting from Saturn’s moon Enceladus.  Further investigation showed that this moon has a subsurface ocean with the conditions to be habitable.  Planetary scientist Dr. Hansen will discuss her role in this investigation, and the implications for future exploration and the study of oceanography and astrobiology in the outer reaches of our solar system.

Dr. Candice Hansen-Koharcheck is a senior scientist at the Planetary Science Institute, and she works on NASA robotic spacecraft missions.  She has a Ph.D. in Planetary Science from UCLA. She was a Co-Investigator on the Cassini Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph team.  Currently she is a member of the flight teams for the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and Mars Trace Gas Orbiter, at Mars, the Juno mission, in orbit around Jupiter, and the Europa Clipper, in development.
