Thomas H. Zurbuchen
Former Head of Science
Ever since NASA was established in 1958, expanding human knowledge of Earth, atmospheric phenomena, and space has been NASA’s priority. Discoveries made with both robotic and human exploration has changed how we think about the universe, our planet, and life beyond our planet. Dr. Zurbuchen will focus on a few recent missions, including the James Webb Space Telescope, the asteroid deflection mission DART, and others—to demonstrate the power of space as a frontier of discovery and show how these missions rely on teams that make the impossible possible.
