The modern scientific search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) is decades old. Why, so far, have we gotten no hint of cosmic companionship? SETI pioneer Dan Werthimer will describe the rationale for past and future searches, and will show how new technologies are revolutionizing SETI.
Dan Werthimer is chief scientist at the Berkeley SETI Research Center. He oversees both SETI@home and the new $100-million Breakthrough Listen project.
