Inexplicable Life

Lecture no. 3 from the course: The Inexplicable Universe: Unsolved Mysteries

Inexplicable Life

Taught by Professor Neil deGrasse Tyson | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Join Professor Tyson on a fascinating investigation of the possible origins of life in the universe. Why was Jupiter believed to be a good environment for life in the 17th century? Why is there only one single “tree of life” on Earth instead of multiple ones? How do extremophiles help scientists study life’s genesis? Could life have come to Earth from another planet? And what do we mean when we hope to find examples of life that is “intelligent”?
