Panel discussion with Dr David Acreman, Professor Paul Davies, Dr Giovanna Tinetti and chaired by Professor Mark Maslin as part of The Times Cheltenham Science Festival.
Thousands of planets outside our solar system have been discovered since the first in 1995, but what are these other worlds like, and could any of them sustain life? Exoplanet investigator and Royal Society University Research Fellow Giovanna Tinetti joins astrobiologist Paul Davies and David Acreman, who uses Met Office models to predict climate on exoplanets, to explore the possibilities of these exciting discoveries.
Dr David Acreman is a Research Fellow in the Astrophysics group at the University of Exeter.
Professor Paul Davies is a theoretical physicist and astrobiologist at Arizona State University.
Dr Giovanna Tinetti is a Royal Society University Research Fellow at University College London.
Professor Mark Maslin is Head of the Department of Geography at University College London.
