The new science of astrobiology and the search for life in the Universe

Dr Ian Crawford will explain how an understanding of the history of life on Earth informs our searches for life elsewhere, and will then discuss the likelihood of finding life elsewhere in our Solar System and on planets orbiting other stars.

Dr Ian Crawford, Senior Lecturer in Planetary Science at Birkbeck College, London, explains how astronomers are searching for life elsewhere in the Universe. In his talk he will explain how understanding the development of life on Earth gives scientists an insight into life on other planets, whether in our own Solar System or in orbit around other stars.
