The Search for Life: Are We Alone?

Humans have contemplated the cosmos for thousands of years, while wondering about extraterrestrial life. Are we alone in the universe? Embark on a journey to explore this question, using the modern scientific approach. We will investigate the possibilities for life beyond Earth, whilst journeying through our Solar System and beyond. Explore the surface of Mars, via data from NASA’s Pathfinder and Curiosity Rovers. Fly past Jupiter’s moon, Europa, whose icy crust may conceal oceans harbouring life. Learn what an exoplanet is and artist’s renditions of ones that may potentially harbour life. Carl Sagan said, “Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known”, so come visit the McCallion Planetarium and prepare to delve into one of the biggest mysteries of our time!

Show Times: 7 p.m., 8:15 p.m.
