Co-organised with Space Observers H.K.
(All sessions will be conducted in Cantonese except session 1)

Venue: Lecture Hall, Hong Kong Space Museum

Session 1: Where are Extraterrestrials? Far, Far Away!
The distances between stars are so vast and we have only surveyed a tiny piece of the Universe. Although the scientists finally found some "habitable" planets like the Earth and tried to detect life, we do not have the ability and technology to detect extraterrestrial intelligent species yet. However, before discussing where extraterrestrial intelligent life should exist, we shall first understand what kind of planets are there in the Universe and how many of them are suitable for hosting life.
