Explore that question with Robert Piccioni, Ph.D. who says: “The odds of accidental life seem extremely remote. Earth is an extraordinarily improbable habitat located at the right distance from the center of a favorable galaxy in a solar system formed at the right time, with only a single star with just the right mass. “In addition, Earth is protected by a big brother, Jupiter, and has consistent seasons due to its little sister, the Moon. It has a nearly circular orbit the right distance from the Sun and a magnetic field that protects its atmosphere.” CREDENTIALS: Robert Piccioni has a Ph.D. from Stanford, was formerly on the research faculty of Harvard, and has a B.S. from Caltech where he studied under famous physicist Richard Feynman. An expert on cosmology and Einstein’s theories, Dr. Piccioni is developing a new TV series, “Einstein for Everyone,” and is the author of two books: Can Life Be Merely an Accident? and EVERYONE’S GUIDE TO ATOMS, EINSTEIN AND THE UNIVERSE.
