Interpretative Dance of Astrobiology

It is your job to do that.
The interpretive dance of astrobiology, that is.

FameLab Astrobiology<.A>

An official competition with prizes and stuff:

“FameLab Astrobiology is a science communication extravaganza! Via four preliminary and one final competition–all in the course of four months–early career astrobiologists will compete to convey their own research or related science concepts. Each contestant has the spotlight for only three minutes. No slides, no charts–just the power of words and anything you can hold in your hands. A panel of experts in both science and science communication will do the judging.

View examples of prior competitions at famelab.org, and/or FameLab’s YouTube channel.

Winners of the prelims will continue to the final at the Astrobiology Science Conference (AbSciCon) in Atlanta, GA in April, 2012. The winner of the FameLab Astrobiology final will go on to compete in the FameLab International final in the UK in June, 2012 and will receive a trip to JPL to cover the Mars Science Laboratory mission landing event in August, 2012.”
