Emeritus Prof. Ben Zuckerman

The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) - And Why It Will Fail

Location: Slichter 3853
Time: 2:30PM

It is likely that extrasolar planets exist that are similar to the Earth in having oceans, moderate atmospheric temperatures, and days similar in length to ours. However, development of a technological civilization probably requires a world with a good mixture of land and of oceans and this might be quite a rare combination. Many searches for radio and electromagnetic signals from extraterrestrial civilizations have been carried out; such searches are dubbed "SETI". However, Ben Zuckerman argues that, if technological extraterrestrials were common, then they would have come here long ago. The absence of evidence of such visitations implies that SETI searches will likely fail. Photo credit: ESO/Jose Francisco Salgado
