Description

Are we alone in the universe? What are the odds that life exists somewhere in the universe? The pursuit to find other planets like Earth has been revitalised by the popular interest surrounding the discovery of many planets orbiting other stars in our galaxy. The challenge continues to identify terrestrial planets in the habitable zone of their stars where possibly life might exist. The NASA Kepler space telescope has recently help discover thousands of Exoplanets planets beyond our own solar system. These newly discovered planets come in a variety of sizes and orbits. The internationally recognized experts in the panel will discuss some of the latest findings regarding the newly discovered planets and the possible life somewhere else in the universe.
