New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science
Albuquerque, NM
Share this event:


Join us for an evening of amazing discoveries concerning New Mexico caves and other caves around the world, and the extreme life that has been discovered within them. Dr. Penny Boston will discuss the lifestyles of exotic microorganisms, the minerals they produce, and the other chemical talents of these amazing tiny lifeforms that help to shape our planet.

Penny Boston travels to some of the most exotic and dangerous caves on Earth including many in New Mexico.  Her areas of research include cave geomicrobiology, microbial life in other highly mineralized environments, unique or characteristic biominerals and biosignature detection. She is also deeply involved in astrobiology, the search for life beyond Earth, and cave formation mechanisms on other planetary bodies. In addition, she is a lifelong devotee of the planet Mars, its exploration, and eventual human visits to that planet. She heads the Cave and Karst Studies Program, in conjunction with the National Cave and Karst Research Institute (NCKRI) of which she is the Associate Director (Academics). NMT is the major academic partner associated with this national institute.  Boston serves on a number of NASA committees, especially the Subcommittee on Planetary Protection, which ensures that we do not contaminate other planets and do not bring back any contaminants from other planets.  


The New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science reserves the right to cancel any event that does not reach a minimum of 6 participants.
