Does life exist out in the Universe? How does life appear? What forms does it take? Is life ubiquitous throughout space?
Humanity has wondered about these questions for centuries, but now thanks to recent progress in extrasolar planet observations, for the first time in history it is possible to scientifically search for the answers.
This event will introduce astrobiology (the study of life in the Universe),
a new science seeking answers to these ancient mysteries.
