Royal Society Meeting: "Towards a Scientific and Societal Agenda on Extra-terrestrial Life"

By Keith Cowing
June 4, 2010

October 4-5, 2010 The Kavli Royal Society International Centre, UK

Organised by Dr. Martin Dominik and Professor John Zarnecki

Should extra-terrestrial life exist, upcoming efforts will provide living generations with a realistic chance of its detection. Even more than the scientific agenda, a corresponding complementary societal agenda needs to be debated. With a mix of invited talks and panel debates, we particularly look into the detection of life, the communication with potential extra-terrestrial civilizations, the implications for the future of humanity, and the political processes that are required.
