FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                         January 11, 1999

PUBLIC LECTURES EXPLORE NASA SEARCH FOR 'COSMIC ROOTS'

     The search for life beyond the solar system will be the
topic of a pair of free public lectures Thursday, January 21, at
the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Friday, January 22, at
Pasadena City College.

     "NASA's Origins Program -- The  Search for Our Cosmic Roots
and ... Galactic Cousins?" will be the topic of the lectures by
Dr. Firouz Naderi, manager of the Origins Program at JPL.  The
JPL lecture will be held in the Laboratory's von Karman
Auditorium, while the Pasadena City College lecture will be in
the campus' Forum.  Both are at 7 p.m., with limited seating
available on a first-come, first-served basis.

     Naderi will explain NASA's series of planned missions to
trace our existence to the formation of galaxies, stars, planets
and early life on Earth.  Origins missions will also hunt for
Earth-like planets around stars in our "galactic neighborhood."
The lectures are part of the monthly von Karman Lecture Series
sponsored by JPL's Public Affairs Office.

     During his 19 years at JPL, Naderi has also served as
program manager for the Space Science Flight Experiments
Program, project manager for the Scatterometer and SeaWinds
projects, and project manager for mobile satellite experiments.
Naderi was also the program manager at NASA Headquarters for the
Advanced Communications Technology Satellites Program.

     More information about JPL's von Karman Lecture Series is
available on the Internet at http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/lecture/,
or by calling (818) 354-5011. JPL is a division of the
California Institute of Technology.
