In Conversation With SETI Senior Astronomer Seth Shostak

In this episode of In Conversation With... we had the honor of interviewing SETI Institute Senior Astronomer Dr. Seth Shostak. We start with the mission of the Institute and his history working at SETI. We then consider the feasibility of an alien race visiting earth to save humanity from itself (à la the Galanthi in The Nevers) and if wormholes (portals) would be the likely transportation of choice. We also discuss the methods that the SETI Institute is currently using to search for extraterrestrial intelligence and his colleagues' research into extremophiles. We also pick Seth's brain about whether or not time travel, as seen in The Nevers, is possible. He also shares the importance of pop culture in science dissemination and how he got his start working as a scientific consultant for films such as Contact, Battleship, Species 2 and the remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still.

Visit to learn more about the work that Seth and his colleagues at the SETI Institute are doing in their search for extraterrestrial intelligence.
