Astrobiology: search for the origins of life

International Space University: Gerald Soffen memorial panel

The sheer number of opportunities for life in the universe suggests that it must exist somewhere, but how will we know it, and how can we find it?

What can we learn from our own planet about life on other planets? How can other planets show us what the evolution of life was like on Earth?

This free public event is part of the International Space University (ISU) program being run in Adelaide, hosted by the three South Australian universities - Adelaide, UniSA and Flinders.

The panellists are:

  • Dr Chris Daniels (Associate Professor, School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Adelaide)
  • Dr Jim Gehling (Research Scientist, Earth Sciences, South Australian Museum)
  • Dr Wendell Mendell (NASA Johnson Space Center, ISU Faculty)

WHERE: Union Hall, University of Adelaide, North Terrace Campus
WHEN: 7.30pm Tonight - Friday, August 6
