Description:

Speaker: Amaya Moro-Martin (Space Telescope Science Institute)

The essential questions of our cosmic existence include "What is our place in the stars?", "How did we get here?", and "Are we alone?". In this scientific and philosophical pursuit, each new answer blossoms into yet more questions, which then seed further inquiries. It is ultimately a journey of self-discovery, full of wonders and wanderers, and which also makes us reflect on our role to enable this exploration to continue beyond this precious time.
