Public Alliance Conversations

last updated: 3/6/2019 - added LPI's lecture series, ARES, NSN, and the GLOBE Webinar series

The Alliance features teleconference conversations with NASA scientists, engineers, and other experts.  Alliance members get to talk live with these experts regularly to hear about the latest science, get materials and resources, as well as ask questions.  Members also have access to our archive of over 500 past conversations on a wide range of topics, almost all recorded, transcribed, and complete with presentation materials.  NASA Affiliates, including STARNet Libaries, Solar System Ambassadors, the Night Sky Network, Earth to Sky, and others, also have access to our live and archived conversations.  Ask your organization's coordinator for information on how to access them.  

Occasionally, we are able to share some archived sessions with the general public, like the ones below.  Click on a title image to find audio recordings, transcripts, and presentation files, all of which are free to use.
