Mapping Microbes: The Search for E.T

May 16 - May 18, 2019
Home DISCOVER OUR PROGRAMS Mapping Microbes: The Search for E.T

How are microbes, organisms that live on and in us, the key to finding extraterrestrial life?

Find out at Mapping Microbes: The Search for E.T. where MAX is getting microbial! Ask our partner Cal Academy scientists about the microbes all around (and inside) us and perhaps some ‘alien’ microbes we have here on earth! The search for extraterrestrial life — and perhaps the origins of life — begins not outward, but inward.
