Professor Beth Ellen Clark Joseph has been invited to be a visiting scientist at the Observatoire de Paris during her sabbatical leave this spring. While in Paris, she will work with European Space Agency (ESA) colleagues analyzing data obtained by ESA's Rosetta mission during a flyby of an E-type asteroid.

Beth will also be a NASA envoy working with ESA scientists to define the science requirements for a European Asteroid Sample Return Mission, entitled Marco Polo.
