Frost Science is honored to welcome The Franklin Institute’s Chief Astronomer, Derrick Pitts, as we join him in exploring the question, is there really just one Earth? Our telescopes and space probes have uncovered a billion places where life might be found and the film industry’s dream factories heighten our level of expectation every year, but we’ve not yet heard the slightest whisper of a signal indicating the presence of life anywhere else in the universe.

It’s a simple question we’ve pondered for a million years: Are We Alone? But digging into the science behind the question, we find the answer is not so simple and it pushes us to consider some of the most compelling philosophical questions we can ask ourselves, including what it will mean when we become the extraterrestrials. Admission is complimentary. Tickets are limited to two per transaction. Program will take place inside the Frost Planetarium.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Program starts promptly at 7:00 p.m. Seating is first-come, first-served. Snacks and beverages will be available for purchase prior to the event. (Food and beverage is not allowed inside the Frost Planetarium).
