A Decade at Saturn  Carolyn gives the audience a sweeping tour through the Saturn system and all that Cassini has found there since its arrival in the summer of 2004, with a finale that brings into sharp focus the significance of humanity's interplanetary explorations.

Promise of Enceladus  In this presentation, Carolyn focuses on the most startling and profound discovery made by Cassini at Saturn: the geysering, anomalously warm south polar terrain of the small, icy moon, Enceladus, and the conclusions drawn from these findings. A sea of salty liquid water, rich in organics, lies beneath the south pole of Enceladus, making this moon home to the most accessible extraterrestrial habitable zone in our solar system.

Life and the Cosmos: The Greatest Story Ever Told  Here, Carolyn gives her take on the long-standing conflict between science and religion, weaving into her tale the perspective gained from post-Galilean scientific exploration of life and the cosmos.
