March 14, 2012 - The Search for Life in the Universe - Dr. Stephen Kane, Caltech

One of the most profound questions that has faced humanity is: How common is life in the universe? The discovery of planets outside of our Solar System has provided additional motivation to answer this question and advances in biochemistry enable us to better understand the development of life on our own planet. In this talk I will outline some of the basic questions we are trying to answer  which have implications for the way we view astrobiology and the frequency of life.
