NASA researchers will present new findings on a wide range of Earth and space science topics at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union, Dec. 11-15 in New Orleans. NASA-related briefings will stream live on the agency’s website.

Media registration is open for the event, which will be held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center at 900 Convention Center Blvd.

Briefing topics include: the latest findings from the Juno mission at Jupiter; the search for life across the universe; early science results from the August 2017 total solar eclipse; and the surprising resilience of a newborn Pacific Island.

Agency scientists, and their colleagues who use NASA research capabilities, also will present noteworthy findings during scientific sessions that are open to registered media.
