Speaker information

Dr Lewis Dartnell, UCL Centre for Planetary Sciences

Astrobiology is a new field of science, encompassing research into the origins and limits of life on our own planet, and where life might exist beyond the Earth. It is hoped that Kepler, a new space telescope, will soon discover dozens of Earth-like planets orbiting distant stars. Extraterrestrial planets and animals developing on these worlds may have followed evolutionary paths unexplored by terrestrial life. What might alien life really look like?
