AMNH SciCafe: Are We Alone in the Universe?

by AMNH on


Lisa Kaltenegger delivers an astronomy lecture at an AMNH SciCafe event

Who can look out into space and not ask the age-old question: Are we alone in the universe? Astronomers have already identified dozens of planets beyond the edges of our solar system which could be like our own Earth.

Join astrophysicist Lisa Kaltenegger as she explains the different methods astronomers use to detect exoplanets orbiting distant stars, and how scientists search for life on these other worlds. This SciCafe program took place at the Museum on November 1, 2017.
