Discovery Series: Oceans to Astronauts, an Evening with Adele Luta

Adele Luta, a Scientist & Innovator from Clear Lake, Texas, didn't see herself working underwater as a physicist. However, soon after graduate school, she was training astronauts for spacewalks in Houston in a massive pool. Her biggest takeaway? Follow your passions even if they don't seem to intersect, you never know when your passion might end up part of your job!

Join us for a night of storytelling involving human spaceflight and how her work, including supporting the next missions to the moon, unites the ocean and the sky.

Adele Luta is an Exploration Extravehicular Activities (EVA) Integration Project Manager at Oceaneering with MS and BS degrees in physics. Her #STEM education has allowed her to work in many research fields including researching the mind, nuclear physics, and teamwork. She is a seaplane pilot and SCUBA diver. She is a member of the 99s, Explorers Club, Sigma Pi Sigma (Physics Honor Society), and AAAS IF/THEN Ambassador.
