Our planet protects us from cosmic rays, solar flares, micrometeorites and huge temperature variations. But what if the planetary shield is not strong enough, or what if we venture out into space itself?! In this press conference, scientists discuss the observation of biosignatures on distant exoplanets and where is the best Lunar real estate. For those who decide to remain on spaceship Earth, scientists outline how they predict sunspots and other extreme space weather with the help of advanced Machine Learning technology and.... a regular clock.
