2010 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate: Is Earth Unique?

For the Rose Center’s 10th Anniversary, astrophysicist and Hayden Planetarium Director Neil deGrasse Tyson hosts and moderates a panel discussion dedicated to the perennial question, “Is Earth Unique?” With what we now know about the stars in our galaxy and the planets that orbit them, we can begin to address this question with informed debate.
