Summary
Astronomer Jon Willis explores the science of astrobiology and the possibility of locating other life in our own galaxy. Describing the most recent discoveries by space exploration missions, including the Kepler space telescope, the Mars Curiosity rover and the New Horizons probe, Willis asks readers to imagine five scenarios for finding life. He encourages us to wonder whether life might exist within Mars's subsoil ice and reveals the vital possibilities on the water-ice moons Europa and Enceladus. He views Saturn's moon Titan through the lens of our own planet's ancient past. And, he even looks beyond our solar system, investigating the top candidates for a 'second Earth' in a myriad of exoplanets and imagining the case of a radio signal arriving from deep space
