Obscura Society NYC Presents: Five Billion Years of Solitude

Join science journalist Lee Billings for an evening discussion of planet hunting, alien Earths and the search for life among the stars

Despite ever-advancing technology in the quest to find life within the great cosmic sea, Earth remains strikingly alone.  Does this mean we are somehow special, unique?  Or are we simply going about our search all wrong?  

Lee Billings, author of Five Billion Years of Solitude: The Search for Life Among the Starsjoins the New York Obscura Society March 9 to share the latest discoveries in the search for Earth-like planets and the trials and tribulations facing the pioneers of the field.  While delving into the hopes and dreams placed on the vast universe that lies beyond our own galaxy, we'll also evaluate our life here on Earth, for now the only habitable planet we've got.
