Understanding Planetary Habitability Pop-Up Workshop

Featured Topic: How to Find and Recognize Life

The theme of Week 4 is “How to Find and Recognize Life”. We will focus on the search for life in our Solar System through robotic space missions searching for life or its building blocks in situ, as well as life beyond our Solar System using telescopes to search for biosignatures on planets around nearby stars and possibly technosignatures from more distant civilizations. We will review the methods proposed to search for life, outline the path forward, and discuss how to avoid pitfalls like false positive detections.
