Not too hot, not too cold' begins the prescription for a world that's just right for life as we know it.

Finding evidence of life beyond Earth is one of the primary goals of science agencies around the world, thanks in large part to NASA's Kepler Mission which launched in 2009 with the objective of finding Goldilocks planets orbiting other stars like our Sun.

The 2017 Beatrice Hill Tinsley Lecturer is Dr Natalie Batalha, an astrophysicist at NASA Ames Research Center and the Mission Scientist for NASA's Kepler Mission. She will present an overview of the science legacy of the Kepler Mission and other key discoveries. She'll give a preview of what's to come by highlighting the missions soon to launch and those that are concepts taking shape on the drawing board.

This event is hosted in collaboration with the Otago Institute for the Arts and Sciences and the Otago Museum.
