The discovery of hundreds of extrasolar planets has raised the possibility of discovering life elsewhere in the next few decades, and yet the origin of life on Earth remains one of the key questions for science.
The talk will cover how stars play a key role, not only in producing the
elements for life, but also in providing the unique handedness in the building blocks of life.
Professor James Hough is former Director of the Centre for Astrophysics Research, University of Hertfordshire. This event is free but places may need to be reserved.
