Come #SpaceOut  with +DNews and +NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory today! We're going to be talking about Europa and the search for life beyond Earth. Starts at 4 p.m. PT (7 p.m. ET, 2300 GMT).

Tag Qs #spaceout  and +Bobak Ferdowsi +Morgan Cable or Kevin Hand might answer live on air.
Each month DNews will sit down with NASA to discuss amazing space topics!

This month, we'll be talking about Jupiter's icy moon Europa. Could its subsurface oceans harbor life? What extreme engineering challenges would we have to overcome to explore it? What field work is going on on Earth right now to help find life on other worlds?

Our guests will include:
Kevin Hand
Astrobiologist and Deputy Chief Scientist, Solar System Exploration
@Alienoceans

Bobak Ferdowsi 
Engineer, proposed Europa Clipper mission, aka "NASA Mohawk Guy" 
@tweetsoutloud

Morgan Cable
Chemist, JPL postdoctoral fellow

Join hosts Trace Dominguez and Dr. Ian O'Neill this Wednesday, August 27th at 4pm PDT as we attempt to figure out the universe. Leave questions below or tweet them to @DNews with the hashtag #SpaceOut for a chance to have them answered on-air!

Come #SpaceOut  with +NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and +DNews! Like Voltron, we've assembled a fun team here on lab to talk about the Curiosity Mars rover and what's ahead for the mission.
Each month DNews will sit down with NASA to discuss amazing space topics!

This month, as the 2nd Anniversary of Curiosity landing on Mars is quickly approaching, we thought it would be a great time to talk about the Red Planet!

Our guests will include:
Ashwin Vasavada, deputy project scientist
Bobak Ferdowsi, systems engineer, Mohawk guy 
Nagin Cox, tactical uplink lead 
Matt Heverly, rover driver 
Amy Shira Teitel, Spaceflight historian

Join hosts Trace Dominguez and Dr. Ian O'Neill this Wednesday, July 30th at 4pm PDT as we attempt to figure out the universe. Leave questions below or tweet them to @DNews with the hashtag #SpaceOut for a chance to have them answered on-air!

Head outside on Friday at 2:27 p.m. PDT (5:57 p.m. EDT, 2127 UTC) and wave toward the East. The Cassini spacecraft will be taking a picture of Earth from space.

Tag pics of you & your friends with #waveatsaturn  and they could be used in a special collage made by the Cassini team.
#WaveAtSaturn on Friday, July 19, when +NASA's Cassini spacecraft will take a picture of Earth from deep #space.

Find out what time to wave and how to participate from this guide.

Did somebody say Clyde?
Meet RoboSimian, an ape-like disaster-recovery #robot under construction at JPL. Today, it was selected to move ahead in competition in the DARPA Robotics Challenge. #darpadrc
