Astrobiology - The Hunt for Alien Life

Astrobiology is a new field of science encompassing the origins and limits of life on our own planet, and where life might exist beyond the Earth.


Astrobiology is a new field of science encompassing the origins and limits of life on our own planet, and where life might exist beyond the Earth. But what actually is 'life'? And what are the most extreme life forms we’ve now discovered on our home-world?

Join Dr. Lewis Dartnell on a tour of the other planets and moons in our solar system which may harbour life, and even further afield to alien worlds we've discovered orbiting distant stars, to explore one of the greatest questions ever asked: are we alone...?

Dr. Lewis Dartnell (lewisdartnell.com) is a researcher based at University College London, studying how life and signs of its existence might survive the intense cosmic radiation on the surface of Mars. He is a science contributor for newspapers and magazines and author of the popular science book introducing astrobiology, Life in the Universe: A Beginner’s Guide.

This event is free and there is no need to book. Following the talk join us for a free glass of wine in a private view of the new Museum. Part of the Life Begins Season at the Grant Museum.
