You'll also hear from Christopher Conselice whose research revealed the likely number of alien civilisations out there. Christopher  is an American astrophysicist who is currently a Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Manchester.


The floating mountain of the Valley of Mo'ara is an inspiration for Avatar's Pandora.
