This event has been postponed.

At this time, NASA is suspending non-essential travel for employees. Dr. Green’s talk and the gallery opening will be rescheduled in April. We will let you know as soon as the date is confirmed.

We have extended the deadline for student submissions to the "Art Inspired by Science" gallery to March 31, and welcome more entries. The work submitted thus far will be on view at Blink's Seattle studio beginning next week.

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to see you at the rescheduled event this spring.


User experience research, strategy, and design firm Blink is pleased to announce that Blink CEO Karen Clark Cole will interview NASA’s chief scientist, Dr. Jim Green, onstage on Thursday, March 5, 2020, in Blink’s downtown Seattle studio.

This is a rare opportunity for students, parents, and science enthusiasts to hear directly from Dr. Green on a range of topics, including Jupiter’s gravitational pull on asteroids, the search for life, “weird science,” new North Pole trade routes, diverting asteroid Bennu, exoplanets, and the responsibility that comes with spending billions of taxpayer dollars. Doors will open at 4 p.m., and the interview will begin at 4:30 p.m.

In conjunction with the event, Blink is hosting an “art inspired by science”-themed gallery show for high school students. The firm invites students interested in participating to submit artwork by February 27. Dr. Green will present awards to the top five submissions, chosen by Blink judges.

"I am so thrilled to welcome Dr. Green to our studio for this event,” Clark Cole says. “At Blink, we combine science and design every day, and it’s fun to create an event that celebrates both the left and the right brain.”

Earlier that day, Dr. Green will also speak at ConveyUX, Blink’s UX conference, which will feature a case study for the “Web Modernization” project the firm is working on for

This event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP early, as space is limited.
