  • Brief Bio

    Michael J. Mumma is a planetary scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, where he is a Senior Scientist in the Solar System Exploration Division, and founding Director of the Goddard Center for Astrobiology. He is also Professor of Astronomy, University of Maryland (College Park). His work is largely directed towards understanding aspects of life’s origin and its distribution in the cosmos – in the first case, by evaluating the role of comets in delivering water and pre-biotic organic compounds to the young Earth and, in the second, by searching for possible biomarker gases on other planets.

    He pioneered the first detection of water in comets, and later extended the methodology to detections of ten additional gaseous species in nearly 40 comets to date, that form the basis for an emerging taxonomy based on volatile composition. He leads the Team that detected release of methane on Mars, and that now is searching for related trace gases to test whether their origin was biotic, abiotic, or both. In 2015, his Team released the first maps of normal- and deuterated-water on Mars, from which they inferred loss of an Arctic-sized ocean since Mars was young. He is currently investigating methane and trace gases on Mars using an infrared spectrometer on the Trace Gas Orbiter spacecraft, which was placed in Mars orbit in 2017.

    An elected Fellow of the American Physical Society, Dr. Mumma was thrice recognized with NASA’s (rarely awarded) Medal for Exceptional Scientific Achievement, in 1988, in 1997, and again in 2009. He received the John C. Lindsay Memorial Prize for Science at Goddard Space Flight Center in 2009 for his discovery of Mars as an active planet, releasing methane today. In 1999, the International Astronomical Union named asteroid 8340 “Michael J. Mumma”. The endowed namesake “Michael J. Mumma Prize” is awarded to the outstanding rising Senior for excellence in Physics or Astronomy at Franklin & Marshall College.

    Brief Bio

    Michael J. Mumma is a planetary scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, where he is a Senior Scientist in the Solar System Exploration Division, and founding Director of the Goddard Center for Astrobiology. He is also Professor of Astronomy, University of Maryland (College Park). His work is largely directed towards understanding aspects of life’s origin and its distribution in the cosmos – in the first case, by evaluating the role of comets in delivering water and pre-biotic organic compounds to the young Earth and, in the second, by searching for possible biomarker gases on other planets.

    He pioneered the first detection of water in comets, and later extended the methodology to detections of ten additional gaseous species in nearly 40 comets to date, that form the basis for an emerging taxonomy based on volatile composition. He leads the Team that detected release of methane on Mars, and that now is searching for related trace gases to test whether their origin was biotic, abiotic, or both. In 2015, his Team released the first maps of normal- and deuterated-water on Mars, from which they inferred loss of an Arctic-sized ocean since Mars was young. He is currently investigating methane and trace gases on Mars using an infrared spectrometer on the Trace Gas Orbiter spacecraft, which was placed in Mars orbit in 2017.

    An elected Fellow of the American Physical Society, Dr. Mumma was thrice recognized with NASA’s (rarely awarded) Medal for Exceptional Scientific Achievement, in 1988, in 1997, and again in 2009. He received the John C. Lindsay Memorial Prize for Science at Goddard Space Flight Center in 2009 for his discovery of Mars as an active planet, releasing methane today. In 1999, the International Astronomical Union named asteroid 8340 “Michael J. Mumma”. The endowed namesake “Michael J. Mumma Prize” is awarded to the outstanding rising Senior for excellence in Physics or Astronomy at Franklin & Marshall College.
