Where are the Extraterrestrials?
We have all stared up into the evening sky and wondered if we are alone in this vast universe. If, amongst a trillion stars, other forms of intelligent life exist - have they visited us, are they coming and are they friendly?If you were ever looking for an authority on extraterrestrials and the potential for life, Dr. Seth Shostak would be the person to talk to. As chief astronomer at the SETI Institute, Dr. Shostak has dedicated his life to ET research and outreach, and has some ideas around alien life that might surprise you. As part of our ongoing lecture series, Higher Education, we were honored to host Dr. Shostak and find out why he is so confident that we will make contact with intelligent alien life within the next 20 years. You may have missed Dr. Shostak’s lecture in Seattle, but you can still get on the Goodship* and watch him explain his extraordinary insights and ideas behind one of humankind’s deepest mysteries.
