Burt Webb: Higher Life Forms Elsewhere: Rare or Common?
Astrobiology is an emerging new scientific field busy arguing what
the chances that complex life forms have of developing on other
worlds, among other key questions. It's likely that simple bacterial
life exists on Mars and many other worlds. What conditions need be
present to support the development of higher life?

Chandra Wickramasinghe: Life Will Find a Way

More on the mechanics and implications of Panspermia, the idea that
life originated out there and is seeded throughout the universe.
Chandra discusses how panspermia answers the limitations to and
supports aspects of Darwinian natural selection, and why the Big Bang
is not the only solution to the observations said to support it. We
also talk about why this idea is so important today on many levels.
Renowned astronomers Fred Hoyle and Chandra Wickramasinghe are
panspermia's leading proponents.
