Buy Tickets

Are we alone in the universe?

We’ve all gazed up at the vast night sky and experienced awe and wonder.  Throughout most of human history we could only speculate about extraterrestrial life and where it might reside.  Now we have applications of new technology to seriously search for life supporting planets.  The Kepler Space Telescope has detected over 1000 planets orbiting numerous stars in our galaxy.  When the new Webb Space Telescope is deployed in a few years, we’ll have the ability to look for oxygen and water on some of these alien worlds.  How is it possible for us to detect planets so far away?  Have we already discovered potential earth-like worlds?   Join retired astronomer and planetarium lecturer Ron Smith on a fascinating voyage in the search for another Earth.
