The search for extraterrestrial life is one of the most exciting frontiers in science. First tentative clues were identified close to Earth in the form of the unusual interstellar object `Oumuamua' and Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) in the Earth's atmosphere. The recently announced "Galileo Project" ushers the new frontier of "space archaeology" in search of extraterrestrial technological relics. 

This discussion hour will be presented by Prof. Abraham (Avi) Loeb, Frank B. Baird, Jr., Professor of Science at Harvard University and a bestselling author. Prof. Loeb's talk will feature content from his book "Extraterrestrial", as well as the  textbook "Life in the Cosmos", both published in 2021. Related material was also featured in his weekly commentaries in Scientific American

This talk is part of a series of monthly community discussion hours hosted by and for members of the Society for Scientific Exploration. This is an interactive event, so please join us with your microphone (at minimum) and video camera (recommended).  A virtual social lounge will be open 30 minutes prior and 30 minutes post-event so that SSE members may (re)connect via unstructured small group discussion around our discussion "tables". Note that the Airmeet platform is optimal on a desktop/laptop computer using a Chrome web browser. 

Society for Scientific Exploration

Since 1982, the Society for Scientific Exploration (SSE), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has provided a professional forum for presentations, criticism, and debate concerning topics, which for various reasons, are ignored or studied inadequately within mainstream science. The SSE also promotes improved understanding of those factors that unnecessarily limit the scope of scientific inquiry, such as sociological constraints, restrictive world views, hidden theoretical assumptions, and the temptation to convert prevailing theory into prevailing dogma. The SSE publishes a peer-reviewed journal, the popular EdgeScience magazine, hosts conferences, and connect scholars through networking events, both online and in person.
