Are We Alone?: Extraterrestrial Intelligence
Edward Murphy, Associate Professor, Astronomy
Have you ever looked at a dark sky full of stars and wondered if anyone else is out there looking back? Recent evidence demonstrates that there may be billions of planets in our Milky Way Galaxy. Professor Murphy will review the search for extraterrestrial intelligence and discuss why we appear to be alone even if Earth-like planets are common.
