Margaret Turnbull

Astrobiologist; 2018 Independent Candidate, Wisconsin Governor
Margaret Turnbull is a leader in the effort to identify exoplanets capable of supporting life. Together with Jill Tarter, she developed a catalog of nearby habitable star systems for use in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI), and she has studied Earth’s spectrum to identify telltale signatures of life. She is currently leading two teams in preparation for the 2025 launch of NASA’s Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST). Using this space-based observatory, they will undertake the first mission to directly image planetary systems orbiting sun-like stars and the first mission to determine the atmospheric composition and surface character of those planets. When she isn’t thinking about alien worlds, Turnbull is an active participant in the civic life of this one. She is currently running as an independent candidate for governor of Wisconsin.
