Physics Colloquium



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 extraordinary interstellar meteor CNEOS 2014-01-08, the unusual interstellar object `Oumuamua and Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) near Earth. The recently announced "Galileo Project" ushers the new frontier of "space archeology" in search of extraterrestrial technological relics.


The lecture will feature content from the book "Extraterrestrial" and textbook "Life in the Cosmos", both published in 2021, as well as material from recent commentaries.
