Is there anybody out there? Searching for life on other planets
Leiden International Short Film Experience shows you the world of science and short films. Watch two short movies, watch a short keynote by an expert and engage in a Q&A. This session is about life on other planets!
The idea that there may be life on other planets has captured human imagination for a long time. But what's the scientific take on this? Since astronomers first discovered exoplanets in 1995, we've come to learn that there are a staggering amount of planets out there in the universe. But, we have yet to find one that is habitable, aside from our own. With the recent discovery of the exoplanet Proxima b - the closest to earth so far - these are exciting times to explore the science behind the possibility of life in space."
