  • The cosmic mystery of extraterrestrial life has captivated humanity for centuries. Now, with leading-edge technology, the quest for tangible answers begins. Lisa Kaltenegger, founding director of Cornell University's Carl Sagan Institute, has assembled a multidisciplinary team of experts to craft a specialised toolkit for extraterrestrial exploration. 
  • Lisa will take us on an enthralling journey across the Universe, utilising her theory that Earth can be used as a Rosetta Stone to decode the potential for life on distant planets. In this talk, we'll discover some of the most extraordinary exoplanets, from those veiled in oceans of lava to solitary nomads adrift in space to others basking under the light of multiple suns. 
  • Delve into the intriguing possibility of detecting life beyond our home planet and explore the possibility that the answers may lay hidden in these mysterious worlds orbiting foreign stars. 
  • Theatre audience: £16/£10, Ri Members or Ri Patrons: £7
