Sarah Rugheimer: Searching for Extraterrestrial Life

Dr. Sarah Rugheimer is a Glasstone Research Fellow and a Hugh Price Fellow at Jesus College Oxford. Her research interests are modeling the atmosphere and climate of extrasolar planets with a particular focus on atmospheric biosignatures in Earth-like planets as well as modeling early Earth conditions. She is interested in anything related to the field of Astrobiology: the study of origin of life on Earth and the pursuit of detecting life on other planets/moons in the Universe.The questions of our origins and the distribution of life in the Universe are the main driving inspiration for her day-to-day work. Her Audible Exclusive book Searching for Extraterrestrial Life reveals what we know about detecting life on other planets. Over 10 eye-opening lectures, she will uncover the strides we’ve made in our search for finding habitable Earth-like planets. You’ll gain first-hand insights into how scientists search for signs of life and our latest attempts to find potential life on Mars, Venus, Europa, Titan, and other moons and planets in our solar system. As she recaps how life started on Earth, you’ll see how our evolution informs our search for detecting life on exoplanets. And, you’ll examine the current search for extraterrestrial intelligence, looking at potential responses to the Drake Equation and the Fermi Paradox. https://www.audible.com/pd/Searching-for-Extraterrestrial-Life-Audiobook/B08N5CHQF8 http://www.sarahrugheimer.com/ LinkedIn Jobs is the best platform for finding the right candidate to join your business this fall.
