Science: Marc Kaufman: Closing in on Extraterrestrial Life
Scientists used to believe the genesis of life was unique to Earth, but breakthroughs in the new science of astrobiologyâ"exoplanets, extremophiles, methane on Marsâ"have revolutionized assumptions about the building blocks of life and where it might be found. Washington Post reporter Marc Kaufman, author of First Contact, says scientists will determine that life exists elsewhere in the universe before the end of this centuryâ"perhaps much soonerâ"and chronicles how they're going to get there. Presented as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
