Lecture: Extra-Terrestrial Life: An evolutionary biologist's view

About this event :

Search for Extra-Terrestrial Life

For our 21st February Lecture, Professor  Wallace Arthur from the National University of Ireland, Galway, and a volunteer at Kielder Observatory will be giving an evolutionary biologists view of possibilities of Extra-Terrestrial Life.

The rate of exoplanet discovery over the last 20 years has been incredible. But do any of these newly-discovered worlds act as a home for life?

And what about the other planets and moons of our own solar system – might we yet find evidence of present or past life on Mars, Europa or Enceladus?
