Is the Truth Out There? Hunting for Habitable Worlds

Location: Noble Science Library, Room 105

Workshop Leaders: ARIEL ANBAR & LEV HORODYSKYJ  |  Special Guest: MARY LUCKING

In modern mythology, the galaxy is teeming with alien beings. Whether they are wise and welcoming or hostile and dangerous, THEY are out there, waiting to be found… if they haven’t found us already. But are such stories true? The scientific search for life beyond our own world is advancing rapidly, and may put the lie to such tales. In this workshop, participants will explore the limits to life in the cosmos using interactive simulators, and consider the stories we will tell ourselves when science fiction confronts the science facts of tomorrow.
