FameLab Astrobiology Finals: Atlanta GA, April 16 2012

Photos at the finals of FameLab Astrobiology at the 2012 NASA Astrobiology Science Conference (AbSciCon in the vernacular) at Georgia Tech. AbSciCon hosted the FameLab Astrobiology finals, where 11 finalists from previous events across in Houston, Denver, and DC were chosen to face off. Each finalist gave a three-minute talk about an area of astrobiology (one prop allowed, no PowerPoint!). Three judges asked a few questions after each talk. Check out the video of the whole show!

The Judge's Choice Astrobiology winner was Brendan Mullan, who won a trip to the FameLab finals at the FameLab International 2012 Finals at the UK's Cheltenham Science Festival. The Audience Choice Astrobiology winner was Aomawa Shields.

Congratulations to all the participants and winners... there was an amazing amount of talent here!
