Space activities are supported by sound economic arguments, with global business revenues from space activities in the order of hundreds of billion dollars every year. Why did humans however, decide to go to space in the first place? What moves humans to try and literally reach for the stars? When Earth itself is affected by complex global problems, and nations fight for diminishing resources, why do some nations and visionaries expend resources to put humans and human-made objects in space? Is it ethical to strive to expand the reach of human civilisation beyond the gravitational pull of our planet? These and other questions will be explored by Dr Jacques Arnould, resident ethicist with the French Space Agency (CNES), and Adjunct Professor with the International Space University.

SHSSP21 Life in the Universe Dr Charles Lineweaver
Twenty years ago we knew of exactly one planetary system: our own. Today we know of more than 1000 confirmed planets around other stars, with a few thousand more candidate systems awaiting confirmation. This lecture will give an overview of Astrobiology from the perspective of an observational astronomer. It will begin with a review of the basic requirements for life and introduce the concept of “habitability” in an astrophysical context. From there, we will look at where in the universe we might expect to find life, starting within our solar system, and proceeding out among the newly discovered exoplanetary systems. Dr Charles (Charley) Lineweaver is the convener of the Planetary Science Institute (PSI) of the Australian National University (ANU), where he holds a joint Associate Professorship in the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics, and the Research School of Earth Sciences.
