Senior Astronomer at the SETI Institute Seth Shostak will join us by Zoom from California to discuss the failure so far to detect extra-terrestrial intelligence by searching the sky for artificial radio signals, and new initiatives being developed or under consideration. Seth spends much energy on outreach activities, publishing numerous popular articles on science, giving talks to lay audiences, and hosting the SETI Institute’s weekly science radio show, “Big Picture Science.”
This lecture will be held via Zoom, and is open to all. There will also be a sky report on what’s worth viewing in the sky during the coming month, plus club announcements.
The Zoom link will be posted here nearer the date. Start time 8 pm, and we aim to finish at 9.15. There will be an opportunity to stay and chat for a few minutes after the end of the formal meeting if you want to.
