NLU student Sarina Craig placed well in a NASA international debate competition.

Sarina Craig, president of the NLU Debate Society, recently finished in seventh place in the Top Speakers category in the Binghamton University 4th Annual Online Debate Tournament in conjunction with NASA Astrobiology Debates.

Craig and other students from around the world debated the resolution:  “An overriding ethical obligation to protect and preserve extraterrestrial microbial life and ecosystems should be incorporated into international law.”

Results from the tournament can be viewed here.

The tournament was an online tournament sponsored by NASA in order to further awareness about space exploration and space policy specifically relating to astrobiology. The tournament itself was hosted by Binghamton University in New York, and any high school or university could participate from around the world.
