Join Dr. Marcello Coradini, Adjunct Professor of Space Systems and Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, for a presentation on the search for extra-terrestrial life. The only examples of living organisms we know developed on our planet. Looking for life outside the Earth implies looking for something that makes use of similar biology and environmental conditions. The discovery of a large number of planets outside the Solar System reinforces our hope that life might have developed somewhere else. However, the environmental conditions on the candidate planets may differ from the terrestrial ones. He will show how these differences may impact the development of an extra-terrestrial human being. Wednesday, April 11, 7:00 pm at the library.
