Inquiring minds want to know: Where are the aliens?

Danby's Community Council is itching to know the answer, and we've invited Cornell's Zoe Learner Ponterio, Manager of the Spacecraft Planetary Image Facility, to talk to us about...aliens and more.

You can Zoom to the presentation from the comfort of your favorite couch on Sunday, January 09, 3pm. If you can't make it, a link to the YouTube recording will be available.

Spoiler alert: Zoe tells us that, while it seems a safe assumption that Earth is not the only place in the whole cosmos with life, questions like how common or rare it is, or how often it evolves into beings such as ourselves are impossible to answer...for now.

But that doesn't mean we can't talk about the questions and take a few guesses. Zoe will talk about about current and future spacecraft missions searching for signs of life on nearby worlds, and will explore the Fermi Paradox and Drake Equation. She'll help us ponder the possibility of life throughout the galaxy.

The entire family is invited to join us for another of Zoe's fun talks. But, please, if you have aliens in your attic, or your backyard, or on page 8 of the December Danby News...ask E.T. to phone home.
