On 8th of Jan., the 7th ELSI International Symposium Public Lecture "The Forefront of Solar System Exploration -Seeking New Encounters-" was held at the Digital Hall of Tokyo Institute of Technology. About 160 audience gathered.
At first, Dr. Yasuhito Sekine (ELSI, Tokyo Institute of Technology) gave a lecture titled "Searching for life beyond Earth in the Solar System".
Then, Dr. Linda T. Elkins-Tanton (NASA/Arizona State University) gave a lecture titled "The NASA Psyche mission: Journey to a Metal World".
The audience asked many interesting questions during Q&A time. What's more, after the lectures, many audience stayed long to talk with both of the speakers, which meant they were deeply interested in the lectures.
ELSI will hold such lectures from now on. Please look forward to them.
