In , Nicolaus Copernicus fomented a revolution when he debunked the geocentric view of the universe, proving instead that our planet wasn’t central to the universe. Super-Earths and Life is a course about alien life, how we search for it, and what this teaches us about our place in the universe. In the past decade astronomers have made incredible advances in the discovery of planets outside our solar system. Thirty years .

    In “Life’s secrets lie in stars and Petri dishes” (New Scientist, 25 January ), Marcus Chown tells us about astrophysicist Dimitar Sasselov’s new “inspirational” book, The Life of Super-Earths: How the Hunt for Alien Worlds and Artificial Cells Will Revolutionize Life on Our Planet:Of crucial importance to the life question, which explains Sasselov’s title, is a certain type. Some of the things essential for life to exist on a planet include liquid surface water and an atmosphere. It’s designated as a super-Earth because the planet is 40% larger than our home planet — 11, miles in diameter, times the mass of Earth and a much higher density.

      In his new book, “The Life of Super-Earths,” astronomy professor Dimitar D. Sasselov claims that a class of planets called Super-Earths may be our best chances for finding extraterrestrial life.   In his book The Life of Super-Earths - How the Hunt for Alien Worlds and Artificial Cells Will Revolutionize Life on Our Planet, Professor Sasselov offers a breathtaking tour of current efforts to.
