The Von Kármán Lecture Series: Ocean Worlds Life Surveyor (OWLS)

The Ocean Worlds Life Surveyor (OWLS) is an integrated, portable, and autonomous life-detection instrument suite designed to identify and characterize life on ocean worlds. It’s the first to explore a wide range of size scales – from single molecules to microscopic organisms – in a water sample. In this talk, we’ll discuss why autonomy is important for this and future missions.
