Fredagskollokvium: Life, but not as we know it - The possibilities of life in the Universe from a chemical perspective
Carl Henrik Gørbitz, Professor - Kjemisk institutt
Earth is still the only planet in the Universe where life is known to exist, but with the discovery of ever more exoplanets, speculations about the habitability of other planets and their potential for life are plentiful. Even within our own solar system, there are several plausible candidates: Mars, Jupiter, Jupiter’s moon Europa as well as Titan and Enceladus orbiting Saturn. How do they measure up when a skeptical chemist assesses the opportunities and limitations? The answers will be provided in this lecture!
