The search for life in the universe is a top priority for astronomers.
Many observatories are designed with a prime focus of detecting signatures of life from beyond Earth. But what are the best celestial targets and what can current technology reveal about the presence of other life forms in our galaxy or beyond?

In this Astronomy Live, Senior Museum Scientist Jackie Faherty will lead us on a captivating journey through insights gleaned over the past several years as missions such as the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) joined the search for life.

Examining the collection of over 5,000 exoplanets discovered to date, we will assess where we are and where we are going in our quest to answer the age-old question: Are we alone in the universe?
