How the Universe Works: Life in Our Universe

This fall, How the Universe Works will address a very fascinating question: Are human beings alone in the universe, or is the cosmos teeming with alien life? We will use a Great Courses lecture series titled Life in Our Universe presented by a professor of astronomy and astrophysics from the University of Arizona. This course provides an in-depth examination of the circumstances under which life may exist in our universe. It addresses some of the most fascinating questions about all types of life in our universe via the latest breakthroughs in astrobiological research. The course starts with the Big Bang and ends by examining evidence that an Earth-like planet will likely be discovered in the near future.
