Watch this fantastic piece from Quanta Magazine on the quest for life in the universe led by David Kaplan.
Who is this guy? He’s a theoretical particle physicist at Johns Hopkins University. If he looks familiar, it’s because he was the producer of - and featured in - the absolutely brilliant documentary film ‘Particle Fever’ concerning the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN and the fascinating human endeavor to understand well…everything.
I had the fortunate pleasure of spending some quality time with David at the 2014 USA Science and Engineering Festival in DC. Fantastic mind, proven producer, and communicates the current state of exoplanet/astrobiology research quite well in this video.
