Peabody Science Café

Life on other Planets

Monday, May 10, 2021 at 7:00 pm


Have you ever gazed up at the night sky and wondered whether someone was looking back at you? In this second of our two-part series, we explore the possibility of life beyond Earth. Are there other planets likely to support life in the universe? How do we locate and learn about those distant worlds? And how does our human perspective shape the way we imagine and look for extraterrestrial beings? We’ll bring together experts from different disciplines for a broader understanding of the intriguing search for alien life.

Join us for another virtual Peabody Science Café, a series dedicated to informal conversations with scholars on natural history themes.
