Life in Space, life on Earth. New Scientist Live, London, panel debate with Zita Martins and Graham Lawton

New Scientist Live

Astrobiologist Zita Martins and evolutionary biologist Nick Lane talk to Graham Lawton, Executive editor at New Scientist, about the origins of life on Earth, and the chances of those processes starting elsewhere in the cosmos. What would extraterrestrial organisms look like, and how would we set about finding them? Would they be similar to the life we know on Earth? How rare would they be, and where should we start looking?
