Are We Alone? SETI Institute Science Radio

Hosted by Dr. Seth Shostak

July 12, 2006 (available for download July 13, 2006) The Universe in Theory

There are a few important things we know about the universe - it's 13.7 billion years old, it was once smaller than the head of a pin, and it's expanding at a pace that becomes more breakneck each second. But in theory, our cosmos could hold many more surprises.

Join us as an astrophysicist argues that the universe has a meaningful message for humans who, despite Copernicus, occupy a special place at its "center."

Also, could the discovery of life elsewhere throw religion into a tailspin?

And why the wacky laws of quantum physics not only ensure that an electron can be in multiple places at once, but might be keys to both quantum computers and -- possibly -- teleportation.


Are We Alone? is broadcast on Discovery Channel Radio Sirius 119 Wednesdays at 2:00 and 9:00 a.m., and 9:00 p.m. EDT, with a third repeat airing Sundays at 11:00 p.m. EDT.

The show is also available as a download on this site and is podcast as SETI:Science & Skepticism. Podcast information
