Our Tea Talk and Telescope series continues on Thursday 23rd January 2014, in Poynting Large Lecture Theatre at 7:30pm.

‘Astrobiology’ is a brand new field of science, encompassing research into the origins and limits of life on our own planet, and where life might exist beyond the Earth. But what actually is ‘life’ and how did it emerge on our own world? What are the most extreme conditions terrestrial life can tolerate? And where in the cosmos might we reasonably expect to find ET?

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…?

Tea and coffee served in the Poynting Coffee Lounge from 7:00pm. Followed by observing, weather permitting.
