In 2017, astronomers detected an elongated object swinging past Earth on its way out of the solar system. The size, shape, and motion of Oumuamua (roughly "scout" in Hawaiian) suggested to a few scientists that an interstellar spaceship had paid a visit. Perhaps the most outspoken of these scientists is Harvard astronomer Dr. Avi Loeb. Of Professor Loeb's new book, Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth, Caltech physicist Sean Carroll says, "Avi Loeb's sumptuously written book will provoke you to think about the possibility of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe in new and stimulating ways." Via this live online interview with Prof. Loeb, Wonderfest joins the Commonwealth Club in facilitating the stimulation!
Dr. Abraham (Avi) Loeb is Professor of Science and Chair of the Astronomy Department at Harvard University. He is the author of four books and over 700 scientific papers. Dr. Loeb is also director of the Institute for Theory and Computation at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
