Astrobiology and Space Exploration

"Pencarian akan persahabatan di dunia luar sana, akan membutuhkan kesabaran yang panjang bagi umat manusia"

2. The Search for other Earths and Life in the Universe

Stanford University Course

In the Stanford Astrobiology Course, our lectures follow a more or less linear path from the Big Bang all the way to the development of complex life and, finally, space exploration. It is truly amazing how evolutionary principles have operated at the macro, and micro, level ever since the birth of the universe we reside in today.

Physics, research, experimentation, astronomy, extraterrestrial life, planets, asteroids, cosmology, measurements, data, innovation, development, history, science, telescopes, observations, theories, predictions, telescopes, instruments, light, expansion.

Every year Professor Marcy brings new discoveries to his lecture and this year it was 1200 new exoplanets! Read about the Kepler Team’s announcement in the Wall Street Journal or watch their video.

The first of 6 parts begins here:

Also listen on Stanford iTunes to Greg Laughlin’s talk on Extrasolar Planets from 2008. With Arbesman Laughlin has tried to predict how soon an Earth-like exoplanet will be found by extrapolating the rate of discovery so far in the search for habitable exoplanets. See the New Scientist, September 21

A syllabus for the Winter, 2010 Astrobiology Course can be downloaded here.

Below you will find a list of recommended resources. If you would like to learn more about the Big Bang, check out these books, videos, and articles.

"There are so many benefits to be derived from space exploration and exploitation; why not take what seems to me the only chance of escaping what is otherwise the sure destruction of all that humanity has struggled to achieve for 50,000 years?"
~Isaac Asimov, speech at Rutgers University~
