Extraterrestrial Life: The Galactic Recipe for a Living Planet [Video]

What are the chemical and physical conditions that make life possible? And is it possible (or perhaps even likely) that life exists on other planets in the universe? In this TED Talk Harvard astronomy professor, Karin Öberg, describes the conditions necessary for life. She also presents the latest scientific discoveries and inventions that are allowing us to get closer to knowing if there is life on exoplanets.

Watch to learn what scientific conditions are necessary to support the existence of extraterrestrial organisms.

 

 

 

Later this month we will be releasing a new video on Big Bang cosmology hosted by Dr. Öberg.
