2:30 Planetarium Show: Distant Worlds, Alien Life
June 6 @ 2:30 pm - 3:15 pm
The night sky is a view of infinity. Does alien life exist out there? Nothing we can ask about the universe is so important for our understanding of the world. In this show we examine the conditions required for a habitable zone, starting the journey in our own solar system. Then we imagine a tour to some of the recently discovered exoplanets orbiting other stars in the Milky Way. What might be essential for life on distant moons or planets and how could we detect it? We see scientists’ conceptions of what life on some of these other planets would look like, too!
