Hoehler presents Caltech Astronomy & Astrophysics Colloquium

Tori Hoehler (SSX) presented the Caltech Astronomy & Astrophysics Colloquium on February 2. The lecture, entitled, “Physical and chemical toeholds for exoplanet bioastronomy” was designed to demonstrate conceptually and by example that significant functional constraints can be emplaced on the core astrobiological concepts of habitability and biosignatures solely by reference to fundamental principles in chemistry and physics, rather than by empirical reference to the Earthly model of life.
