Lecture 4
The distribution of life in the universe: What kind of worlds are available for life
(To be conducted in English)

How many worlds that might have life are close enough to be able to tell if they have life? This question depends on the number of stars that have habitable planets, which depends on how many planet-like worlds per star there are. It also depends on how similar to earth a world needs to be. Once we start finding life on other worlds, we can learn much about how well life can survive in different conditions.
