Event: ‘Are we alone? The hunt for ET’

Is there life beyond Earth?

The observable universe is home to millions of trillions of exoplanets, as planets outside our solar system are called. Many of these remote realms are believed to be of similar size to the Earth, some in orbits where surface water can exist in liquid form. Does this suggest the universe is teeming with life? Or might we be alone in the vastness of space?

That’s the question a panel of eminent scientists, along with Fairfax science columnist Peter Spinks, will debate at a fascinating evening event entitled ‘Are we alone? The hunt for ET’.

Presenters will be:

  • Dr Alan Duffy, Melbourne University astrophysicist
  • Dr Katie Mack, Melbourne University cosmologist
  • Dr Rosemary Mardling, Monash University astronomer
  • Dr Christopher Fluke, Swinburne University astrophysicist

With video interviews from:

  • Mr Allen Sirota, robotics supervisor at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory
  • Dr Mario Perez, NASA astrophysicist and planet hunter in Washington
  • Professor Mark Sims, former mission manager of the European Space Agency’s Mars probe, the Beagle, and now astrobiology professor at UK’s Leicester University
  • Dr David Patterson, CSIRO astrophysicist and citizen scientist with Planet Hunters

When: Friday 19 April from 6.30-8.00pm

Where: The Edge in Federation Square

Cost: $30 public, $20 for The Age subscribers. Click here to book tickets.

 

This event is not run by, supported or associated with Melbourne Skeptics in any way.
