The Quiet Sky: Searching for Extraterrestrial Intelligence

The Quiet Sky: Searching for Extraterrestrial Intelligence
November 2011 in Tacoma

After 50 years, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) hasn't detected any artificial radio signals. Should we have expected to hear something by now? Can we learn from the silence? Join the University of Puget Sound's Bernard Bates, Ph.D., at the November Tacoma Science Café to explore the ideas behind SETI, how non-scientists can actively participate in the search, and what conclusions might be drawn from our last half-century under a "quiet sky".
