Are we alone in the Universe? Are other Earth-like worlds common? Do any have signs of life? How did life emerge from a lifeless cosmic beginning?

Curious humans have asked these questions for millennia, but for the first time we can foresee actually answering them. With the right technology, and the right telescope, we could soon search nearby exoplanets for signs of life, and tell the cosmic story of how this life came to be.

Please join +Tony Darnell Dr.+Alberto Conti and Dr. Harley Thronson as we discuss the future of space astronomy in the 2020's and beyond with Dr. Marc Postman and Dr. Jason Tumlinson of the Space Telescope Science Institute.  As always, we welcome your questions and comments!
