Astronomers have discovered that the Universe is full of potential homes for life, with planets around the vast majority of stars, yet the skies remain disappointingly free of swooping starships, visiting aliens or radio signals from space. Chris Lintott looks at the evidence for life in the Universe, explains how you can help and tries to argue that the truth is out there somewhere.
