Director Announces Research Team for Inquiry on the Societal Implications of Astrobiology, 2016 - 2017

by William Storrar

I am pleased to announce the research team in our Inquiry on the Societal Implications of Astrobiology for the 2016-17 academic year. This interdisciplinary team of theologians and scholars in the humanities and social sciences will pursue their work in dialogue with leading astrobiologists. We gratefully acknowledge support from the NASA Astrobiology Program and the John Templeton Foundation, which has made this program possible. 

I look forward to welcoming these scholars in September to begin the second year of our pioneering Inquiry under the leadership of CTI Senior Fellow Robin Lovin, theologian Douglas Ottati, and biologist Frank Rosenzweig.
