The Biological Universe – how abundant is life?

Monday 26th October 2020 from 18:30pm to 19:30pm


Join Professor Wallace Arthur, Emeritus Professor of Zoology from the National University of Ireland, who will present a fascinating exploration into life in the Universe.

Author of numerous books including his most recent publication "The Biological Universe" Wallace will look at three key questions about extra-terrestrial life.

First, how widespread is it - in other words, how many planets is it likely to exist on? Second, what's it likely to be like - in particular is it likely to be similar to, or very different from, life on Earth? Third, how and when are we likely to discover it? A question an answer session will follow the presentation and will be a great opportunity to put your question to one of the leading minds in this field.
