Location: St. Peter Library Meeting Room

When did life originate on Earth, and how do we know? Could there have been life elsewhere in the Solar System? What would we look for? The science of Astrobiology–understanding life’s distribution in the Universe–is a hot topic in science today because it speaks to who we are, whether our planet is unique, and the mysteries that remain undiscovered.
