Jon Willis: What Kind of Life Might Be Out There in Space?
There's good news and bad news about the search for life in space.  The good: it's a real scientific possibility, not just sci-fi. There's even a chance we may discover it within a century. The bad: if it exists, it's very likely to be simple, single-cell organisms, not the cute and cuddly alien creatures we see in movies. Guest host Mark Burns talks to an astronomer who just written a book on the latest science in this field.—Original airdate: 1/27/2017
