"When people think about other worlds, they think about other life." Nobel Prize Laureate Didier Queloz was a pioneering explorer of exoplanets – planets outside our own solar system – and now he finds himself at the centre of a new endeavour, the ETH Center for the Origin & Prevalence of Life. Here, scientists from a variety of disciplines will meet to challenge their limits and hopefully make some breakthroughs. "The gaps between disciplines are exploratory places," as Queloz puts it.
Didier Queloz speaks to the Nobel Prize's Adam Smith about sending seasoned researchers like himself to scientific boot camp, the importance of science and science communication, and what finding ET might mean for the future of humankind.
Queloz received the 2019 Nobel Prize in Physics together with Michel Mayor for their research on exoplanets.
