Centre resesarchers talk about 'Lasers and the Search for Alien Worlds'

Lasers and the Search for Alien Worlds Talk part of the 'Incredible Power of Light Events'

Over the last decade astronomers have identified hundreds of planets outside our own solar system.  However, plants which could support life, like earth, are relatively small, so finding them is a massive challenge.  Technology is allowing us to address this challenge.  This talk will explore how research which began in laser laboratories is now making an impact on planet hunting with Derryck Reid and Robert Thomson.
