"Astrobiology: The Science of Searching for Life Beyond Earth"

Alice Pevyhouse, Instructor, CCSF Astronomy Department.

Synopsis: Have you ever wondered about the possibility of life out in the Universe? If so, come listen to a talk about Astrobiology. The hour will be filled with what the goals of astrobiology are and what life on our own world can tell us about the possibility of life beyond the Earth. The search for extremophiles has vastly expanded our understanding of the environmental conditions that life can not only tolerate but thrive in. This greatly opens up the possibilities of worlds we previous thought had no chance of sustaining life to be included in an ever-growing list of places that could possibly harbor life.

Lecture co-sponsored by CCSF Astronomy and Biology Departments.
