Exploring in extreme environments like outer space or under the sea means designing habitats to keep humans alive. This introductory talk will share some of the challenges encountered when planning to touch upon the moon, Mars, and even Titan. Our speaker will share what it is like to live in an underwater habitat, wear a training spacesuit, and stories from her journey in STEM. Our Speaker: Dr. Adele Luta is a scientist and innovator. She has worked at National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Johnson Space Flight Center as a certified Mission Control Center flight controller and astronaut instructor where she supported over 90 spacewalks. She has worked on several teams to support NASA's Artemis program. Her training as a physicist has allowed her to work in many fields including researching the mind, nuclear physics, and teamwork. She is a private pilot, aquanaut, and coral restoration volunteer SCUBA diver. She enjoys sharing her passion for science, innovation, and exploration.
