Windows to the Deep – Live Conversations on the Blake Plateau
Thursday, November 4, 2021
12:30-2:00 pm ET
Join the President’s Science Advisor and ocean explorers as they investigate 10,000 feet deep in an area of the seafloor that’s never been explored before.
The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History (NMNH), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) invite you to join a virtual event highlighting the importance and value of the ocean during a live conversation with explorers onboard NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer, America’s ship for ocean exploration. Presidential Science Advisor and OSTP Director Dr. Eric Lander will co-host the livestreamed event with NOAA National Ocean Service Exhibits Manager and Education Specialist Symone Barkley.
The live interaction will bring the excitement of discovery directly to the public as ocean explorers image areas of the seafloor that people have never explored before and share their real-time discoveries through a live-streamed video feed. The event will stoke curiosity about the diverse and largely unknown ecosystems and organisms of the deep sea and highlight the importance of the ocean for addressing the climate crisis, rebuilding the economy, and advancing environmental justice. The event will feature commentary live from:
