Pale Rainbow Dots: The Search for Other EarthsSource: Carnegie Institute for Science
Wednesday, October 25, 2017, 6:30 PM ET
What does it mean to be a habitable planet? How can we find life if it’s truly “alien” and different from life on Earth? And what techniques can we use to search for life on worlds orbiting distant stars? Drs. Arney and Domagal-Goldman, astrobiologists at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, will discuss the science behind these questions and the future telescopes that may provide the answers.
The lecture at the Carnegie Institution for Science will be streamed live. For details, visit the event page.
