ALIEN LIFE: WILL WE KNOW IT WHEN WE SEE IT?
Discussion from the World Science Festival moderated by John Hockenberry and the participants are Scientists Jack W. Szostak, Paul Davies, Sara Seager and Dimitar Sasselov. This was held at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday May 31, 2014 as part of the Big Ideas series.
If you have watched the last Video post you may have many questions and this discussion is an interesting one which adds on to the information you got there. Learn how scientists across disciplines—astronomers, chemists and microbiologists—are intensely studying the evolution of life on Earth to help identify life abroad, a research agenda with wide-reaching ramifications for science, philosophy, religion, and much more. Watch the video and we will discuss the issues when we meet next in our club meeting.
