Event details

There is much evidence for a deep biosphere today, but the geological record of it has been little explored. The talk will review evidence for subsurface habitats in the geological past, and emphasise that this is a likely setting for life on other planets.

The astrobiology seminar series is run by the UK Centre for Astrobiology based in the School of Physics & Astronomy. Astrobiology is a multi-disciplinary subject and the seminar series actively encourages attendance by undergraduates, postgraduates and academic staff from other departments..
