IAA Lecture, Weds 13th October 19:30

“Habitability beyond our solar system”, by Professor Chris Watson

Deputy Head of the School of Mathematics and Physics, Astrophysics Research Centre, QUB

Synopsis:

What do we mean by ‘habitability’ and ‘habitable’? How do we define it? Do we even know what ‘habitable’ looks like? What’s the problems with determining whether something is habitable? Why are we looking in the places we’re currently looking? Actually, are we even looking in the right places?

 I’ll talk about the current scientific thoughts surrounding these fundamental questions, what is driving these thoughts, and why it’s so difficult for an astrophysicist like myself to answer these questions.

Paul Evans is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
