The Biological Universe - how abundant is life?

The Biological Universe - how abundant is life?

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

Online event by Yorkshire Dales National Park

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.

The event is taking place as part of the National Parks Virtual Dark Skies Week which is organised jointly by the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Parks, this with enthusiastic support from the team at Go Stargazing!
