Light of the Stars: Alien Worlds and the Fate of the Earth

Date/Time

Nov 5, 2018
07:30 PM until 09:00 PM

Description

Adam Frank, astrophysics professor at the University of Rochester, uses the latest science in this lecture at the California Academy of Sciences to show that Earth is likely not the first time a technological civilization has emerged from planetary evolution. More important, all those other worlds and other possibilities have a lesson to teach us. Beginning with a revolutionary new understanding of life and planets gained through the field called “astrobiology,” we see that how civilization formed on any planet is likely to have triggered its own version of climate change.
