Lecture 5: Evolution
Posted in Stanford University
Professor Lynn Rothschild discusses evolution in the context of space and time, focusing on the emergence of life in the context of planetary formation on Earth and possibly elsewhere, and the evolution of intelligence in here and beyond.
Lecture 4: What is Life?
Posted in Stanford University
Lynn Rothschild, Research Scientist at NASA's Astrobiology Institute Ames Research Center, discusses the need for an operational definition of what it means to be alive and attempts to hammer out a definition of her own.
Lecture 3: The Search for Other Earths and Life in the Universe
Posted in Stanford University
Geoff Marcy, Co-Investigator on Kepler Team and UC Berkeley Professor of Astronomy, discusses the efforts of the Keplar Teams to locate earth-like planets by observing orbit, doppler shift, and the dimming of Upsilon Andromedae.
Lecture 2: From Astrochemistry to Astrobiology
Posted in Stanford University

Lecture 1: Introduction to Astrobiology
Posted in Stanford University
In this introductory lecture of Professor Lynn Rothschild's Astrobiology and Space Exploration course, professor Seth Shostak of the SETI institute gives a witty and engaging presentation on the overall status of the field of astrobiology.
Lecture 40: Male Reproductive System & Review
Posted in Berkeley
