How will we search for life beyond Earth? If we do find life, what are the implications? As an Astrobiologist, Dr. Alfonso Davila travels to 'planetary analogue environments' that are remarkably similar to areas on other planets -- Chile's Atacama Desert is the driest place on Earth, and an analog for Mars' rugged, arid terrain. Alfonso also discusses his science journey, challenges, mentorship, and science communication.
