Is there anyone out there?~ Roger Dymock (BAA Assistant Director [Exoplanets])

Roger will consider the requirements for life on Earth; origins ~ past, present and future.  The possibility of life existing elsewhere in the Solar System is under serious consideration by space and bio scientists.  What makes a habitable zone will be considered and the importance of bio signatures, what are they and how we can detect them, will be considered.  Finally, further afield how do we search for extraterrestrial intelligence, bi=oth life within and beyond our galaxy.

The ISS is a frequent visitor to our skies and many have imaged the white trail of sunlight reflected off the vehicles solar panels.  However at a distance of 400km how can we image the ISS and show detail of the craft?
