Are we alone in the universe? That age-old question is addressed here by the founder of Harvard's Origins of Life Institute, who describes how modern astronomers have begun searching for planets that seem most like our own. He also explains how chemists have been working out the biochemistries which those planets could support and how these discoveries are enabling biologists to peer into the unknown in an effort to understand what truly 'alien' life forms might be like.
