Alien encounters, science fiction films, dreams of becoming an astronaut—the possibility of life beyond Earth has always fascinated us. But our curiosity has outpaced our ability to explore space. Scientists turn to the known to learn about the unknown, finding clues about life among the stars in places like dark caverns, ice-covered Antarctic lakes, and Yellowstone’s geysers. Our speakers will explore their fascination with life on other planets and ways they can pursue the unknown right here on Earth.
