Hanno Rein, former Member (2010–13) in the School of Natural Sciences, discusses using biosignatures to find signs of life, both in the Solar System and beyond. Additionally, Rein explains why chances are good for finding an Earth-like exoplanet around a Sun-like star within the next few years, as well as the challenges faced when that planet is discovered.
