Today’s episode is about the search for extraterrestrial life with Avi Loeb, the Frank B. Baird, Jr., Professor of Science at Harvard University and a bestselling author, in NYT, Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, and more. He is the author of the book “Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth” and the book Interstellar.
Avi is the Director of the Institute for Theory and Computation (2007-present) within the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, and also serves as the Head of the Galileo Project (2021-present). He had been the longest-serving Chair of Harvard's Department of Astronomy (2011-2020) and the Founding Director of Harvard's Black Hole Initiative (2016-2021).
We talk about the following and so much more:
✅ How the first stars and galaxies formed, and how are human beings made up of the “stars”?
✅ Why he wrote “Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth”
✅ His definition of “alien”, and whether they have visited us.
✅ `Oumuamua’, what it means, and what conclusions he has made from it
✅ Why he feels that this is important to know and understand
✅ His findings about the meteor that crashed in the southwestern Pacific Ocean nearly a decade ago and why he believes it might be an alien spacecraft
✅ Some of the research he has observed in his latest book, Interstellar?
