Earth2.0 - The Future of Mankind in Space

The Future of Mankind in Space.

The continuously discovered of new exoplanets leads scientists and public to explore the search for habitability. Will we be able to find a twin of the Earth – a distant world we could safely call "a new home for humankind"? Why is Earth so special and how could scientists search for extra-terrestrial lifeforms?

During the webinar Dr. Vladimir Bozhilov, Head Assistant Professor at the Department of Astronomy, Faculty of Physics at Sofia University, will explore the exciting field of exoplanets and the search for habitability.

The webinar will take place at Scientix online meeting room on 30 October 2017 at 17:00 CET. To Regiter, please fill the online form.
