Unless you’re Donald Trump, you’ve probably noticed that we haven’t been taking the greatest care of our planet over the last few centuries.

And our search for life elsewhere has shown us that we’re not exactly blessed with an abundance of similar worlds in our immediate neighbourhood.

Dr. Frederic Marin is an Astrophysicist from the Astronomical Observatory of Strasbourg
