The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By


When you gaze up at the stars, do you ever wonder how the universe came to be? What is so special about earth, and are there other planets out there with those same characteristics?

Join us as Dr. Ben Oppenheimer, Associate Curator and Professor in the Department of Astrophysics, American Museum of Natural History, explains how we're closer than ever to understanding how solar systems form, what characteristics make a planet habitable, and how we're looking for life on other planets.

Please join us at a welcome reception from 6-7 pm.

This event will also be broadcast as a webinar.
