Bijan Nemati on Finding Another Earth
Summary: On this episode of ID the Future, Bijan Nemati, formerly of CalTech’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and now at the University of Alabama, Huntsville, tells what science is learning about how hard it is to find a planet like Earth. Anywhere. The more we learn about the conditions necessary for a planet to host life, the more we see we may need to search at least tens of thousands of Milky Way galaxies to expect to find another one--at least if it all depends on blind luck. This talk is part of bonus material included with the new, thought-provoking series Science Uprising.
