Life in our solar system: redefining the habitable zone

Traditionally, the search for life beyond Earth has been in the ‘habitable zone’, where water may be, or may have been, present on a planetary surface. Professor Andrew Coates will examine the key role that UCL has played in the ExoMars, Cassini and JUICE missions, which have broadened the search to include Mars and the ocean worlds of Enceladus, Titan and Europa.
