Why do we search for life on other planets

Date: 
3 August, 2016
Time: 
5 pm
Venue: 
Lahore University of Management Sciences
Abstract: 

Close to 5000 planets and counting orbiting other stars have been discovered so far, yet we have no evidence of a planet similar to Earth.  But this will likely to change as the astronomers have a good possibility that they will detect signatures of life on some of these worlds in future. What will such a discovery mean for humans on Earth and meaning we will derive from it? Why do we even care about life on other planets? Dr. Salman Hameed will discuss these topics and will try to discuss the techniques currently in use to detect life on other planets.

Time:

Venue: 
SMME Seminar Hall, National University of Science and Technology (NUST)
Abstract: 

Gravitational waves were detected by LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-waves Observatory). This monumental discovery comes precisely 100 years after Einstein predicted these ripples in space-time. At the heart of this phenomenal outcome, lies a marvel of technological powers-a LASER interferometer. In this popular level talk Dr. Muhammad Sabieh Anwar will recount, how the phenomenon of interference shapes our present day picture of Physics. Right from dispelling the notion of an all pervasive ether, finding signature of "matter waves", probing molecules on stars a single photon interfering with itself, to the recent signatures of the gravitational waves, these beautiful machines called interferometers harbor immense power as one of the most important tools for scientific discovery. He will present examples where the phenomenon of interference has enriched special relativity, general relativity, the foundations of quantum mechanics and quantum optics.
