The detection of extra-terrestrial life and the consequences for science and society

The detection of extra-terrestrial life and the consequences for science and society


A two day discussion meeting
25 and 26 January 2010

Astronomers are now able to detect planets orbiting stars other than the Sun where life may exist, and living generations could see the signatures of extra-terrestrial life being detected. Should it turn out that we are not alone in the Universe, it will fundamentally affect how humanity understands itself - and we need to be prepared for the consequences.
