Our Place in the Cosmos

A conversation between Jordi Isern, director of the Institut d'Estudis Espacials de Catalunya (IEEC-CSIC), Jill Tarter, director of the Center for SETI Research at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute and Jordi Portell, coordinator of SETI.cat.


The International Year of Astronomy is the inspiration behind this session focussing on the space sciences, which open windows to the Universe while at the same time posing radical questions about our place in the cosmos. In an open discussion that includes the participation of Jill Tarter by videoconference, this session will also offer a rigorously scientific look at the world's largest research project into extraterrestrial life.
