CAC's Caleb Scharf Discusses Potential Life on Other Moons

Astrobiology strives to answer questions about the origin and evolution of life in the Universe. To do this requires the synthesis of classical scientific disciplines. Caleb Scharf, director of the Columbia Astrobiology Center and an associate research scientist and adjunct assistant professor, presents an example of how this synthesis works by discussing the nature of planets, life on Earth, and the idea that the moons of giant planets may offer an alternative harbor for life in the cosmos.
