The Societal Implications of Astrobiology

Robin Lovin, the William H. Scheide Senior Fellow at the Center for Theological Inquiry in Princeton, New Jersey, will give a presentation on October 15 titled “The Societal Implications of Astrobiology.” Supported by a major grant from the NASA Astrobiology Program, the Center’s Inquiry on the Societal Implications of Astrobiology aims to engage the humanities, social sciences, philosophy, and theology with current science exploring the origins and extent of life in the universe. The Inquiry will bring research scientists and scholars in other fields together in an interdisciplinary discussion of how society supports and structures the search for life and how we will understand the discoveries that flow from it. Dr. Lovin’s talk will be held in the Life Sciences Building, Room 312 and will begin at 1:00 p.m. All are welcome.
