Bus To Nature: Route 22
Kaltenegger, who earned her doctorate in astrophysics from the University of Graz, has been examining alien worlds for biosignatures—the pre-conditions and indications of life. “We are on the cusp of discovery, mapping our place among the thousands of worlds in the night sky,” she says—adding that this new era of astronomic exploration and discovery will also “give us the opportunity to better understand our own planet, and perhaps even a glimpse into our future.”
