Panel: Nathalie Cabrol, Seth Shostak, Mark Showalter, Fergal Mullaly – SETI Institute
Is this the generation that will discover extraterrestrial life? Some scientists have opined that we’ll find other living beings – whether they be microbes on other planets or intelligent beings in another star system – within two decades. An energetic panel of SETI Institute astrobiologists will discuss why both science and technology give support to the idea that we may soon prove that Earth is not the only world where life has arisen. Audience Q&A follows panelists.
