Is there life in the Universe? How is it looking for it? What biomarkers are being mapped in the exoplanets? These are some of the topics presented in “Life in the Universe,” the first chapter of the series Scientific Dialogues, created by the Millennium Nucleus Physics of Active Matter of the University of Chile.
In this first chapter, the director of the Millennium Nucleus, Rodrigo Soto, interviews the UNAB astronomer Bárbara Rojas-Ayala on this fascinating subject that today monopolizes the investigations of the astronomy world.
Scientific Dialogues will continue during July with “Virus and bacteria;” chapter in which Felipe Barra, researcher of the Nucleus, interviews María Paz Bertoglia, epidemiologist at the University of Chile; and with “Artificial Intelligence”, where the Deputy Director of the Nucleus, María Luisa Cordero, interviews the doctor in Computer Science of the Universidad of Chile, Claudio Gutiérrez.
