Judaism teaches that to save one life is to save an entire world. What about when you save the world?

Join Dr. Nancy Chabot, who led NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART), in conversation with Vilna community member Jason Weiner, to learn more about planetary defense. The DART mission successfully demonstrated a method of asteroid deflection by kinetic impact, which could help to protect Earth from potential asteroid impacts in the future.

This program is part of our signature Lifesavers Speaker Series that invites us to engage deeply with individuals championing social justice and positive change. This lecture is generously sponsored by Jason Weiner and Nicole Zatlyn.
