Our Galaxy probably hosts billions of planetary systems. But how many of those planets are like the Earth and how can we determine whether life has taken hold there, too? In this talk, Dr. Hoehler discusses the science of searching for life beyond our immediate neighborhood, and how we will seek evidence of inhabited worlds in the future.
