ARE WE ALONE?
 The Search For Our Cosmic Roots And Galactic Cousins

 Canadian Society of Iranian Engineers and Architects (MOHANDES) and Tirgan are pleased to jointly organize this lecture which is open to all members of the public on Saturday July 20, 2013. Among the intriguing topics to be considered at this lecture will be the latest cutting edge
research relating to the “search for Earth-like planets in other planetary systems”.

Our esteemed speaker, Dr. Firouz Naderi, currently serves as the director of the Solar System Exploration Directorate at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (“JPL”). Formerly, he acted as Associate Director for Project Formulation and Strategy at JPL. He headed the Mars Exploration Program (2000-2005) during a period in which NASA successfully launched the Mars Odyssey, the landing of Mars Exploration Rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, and developed the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Dr. Naderi managed the Origins Program (1996-2000), an ambitious technology-rich plan to search for Earth-like planets in other planetary systems. Dr. Naderi received his doctorate in electrical engineering from the University of Southern California in 1979 before commencing his storied 34 year career at NASA.
