Streaming | Lowell42 | Are There Alien Civilizations on Planets Orbiting Distant Stars?
Join Lowell Observatory on September 3rd at 6 pm for our first ever Lowell42 live stream. At this point, we have exactly one example (Earth) of a planet harboring a civilization. During this discussion, Dr. G. Kent Colbath, a retired geology professor, will consider what we know about life on Earth that might inform or constrain the search for other civilizations orbiting distant stars.
At Lowell42 we’ll delve into deep questions like these. Our goal is to connect you to “life, the Universe, and everything.” (Many of you will recall that in Douglas Adams’s comical novel “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,” the supercomputer came up with 42 as the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything.)
