Feb. 22, 2012 - PRLog -- Professor Mike Edmunds of Cardiff University gives this month’s talk at the Dylan Thomas Centre’s free Science Café on Wednesday, 29 February at 7.30pm.

Mike Edmunds (Emeritus Professor of Astrophysics) will review the recent flood of observational evidence about the existence of planetary systems around other stars, and make some estimates of the likely number of planets in the Universe.

Based on a short description of the history of life on Earth, we will then try and agree on a definition of "life", and discuss where life might exist in the Solar System or in other systems.

The critical issues will be highlighted, and extended to discussion of the difficult question of whether intelligent life might exist elsewhere in space or time. The talk is organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

The Swansea Science Café offers opportunities for anyone to find out more about new, exciting and topical areas of science.

Designed to be informal and entertaining, the café typically runs on the last Wednesday of every month at the Dylan Thomas Centre. Entry is free and talks start at 7:30 pm.

Please contact the Centre on 01792 463980 for more information, or visit http://www.dylanthomas.com for information on other events.
