Earlier this year, the Academy launched Brilliant!Science: Decoding Human Health. It was such a success that we will again be offering a series of events focused on a particular theme. This fall’s Brilliant!Science festival is all about Extraterrestrial Life and will feature a number of Fellows of the Academy. Some of the most brilliant minds from NASA, the American Institute of Aeronautics, SETI Institute, the Kepler Mission, and others will be on hand to discuss what scientists know about the conditions necessary to support life, how they use scientific data to visualize what extraterrestrial life might look like, and the challenges and prospects of exploring the great beyond.

But that’s not all. Please check out some of the major lectures and workshops that will be presented at the Academy this fall. They reflect the Academy in its role as a Public Stage for Science. After all, the Academy aims to engage people of all ages—from “birth until eternity.” It’s not just for kids, even if it is great for kids. Join us for some great adult fare. You’ll leave thinking in new ways. New can be good. Give these programs a try.
