Life in Space: the Science, the Challenges, and the Broad Horizon
Thursday 4 October 2018, 15:30 – 16:30
Location: Bremen Conference Center – DLR Hall
This event will showcase our current understanding of life in space, including the potential for extraterrestrial life and the search for life in our solar system (Ehrenfreund), and the potential for live humans to capably and safely deal with the fundamental challenges of spaceflight, including: biomedical (Mukai); long-duration life support (Mankins); and the projection of individual human capabilities and presence on the surface of another world (Newman). A clarification of these life-related issues will be provided by these distinguished panelists, and via (live) audience engagement.
