Extremophiles: Grasping an Understanding of Life in the Universe.

Are we alone in the Universe? Do organisms living in extreme conditions on earth suggest life is possible on other worlds? How did we get here? What does a giraffe have in common with a mosquito? What makes extremophiles extreme, who’s to say? Join us for an exciting discussion of these and many other questions about understanding the survival of life in the Universe with Dr. Felisa Wolfe-Simon. Currently working with wild fermentation, she is a noted biochemist, astrobiologist, former NASA fellow and Department of Energy researcher as well as professional musician.
