Talk: Is There Life Out There ? @ Observatory
Sep 22 @ 8:15 pm – 9:30 pm

IS THERE LIFE OUT THERE?  -  SPEAKER - JOHN BARUCH

The search for life is now the top priority of many national and international programmes. At one level it is the search for amino acids on Comet 67P or in the Martian subsoil.

Are amino acids produced naturally on the surface of ice and dust particles in space ever since the first generation of stars exploded? At another level is the search for intelligent life ridiculous or a natural result of the universal existence of amino acids and time.

Was SETI the start of a programme that will inevitably produce a positive result and if so will we ever meet our neighbours?
