Alien Encounters: two part television program from Science Channel

“In two dramatic hours, Alien Encounters lays out a plausible hypothetical scenario for a first contact event. What would really happen if we got a message from space? How will humans react when we learn a spacecraft is on its way to Earth? Will humans learn from aliens, or become colonial subjects?”  MORE

The Eerie Silence: Renewing Our Search for Alien Intelligence

Just finished reading this and found it very informative and inspiring.

“Are we alone in the universe? This is surely one of the biggest questions of human existence, yet it remains frustratingly unanswered. In this provocative book, one of the world’s leading scientists explains why the search for intelligent life beyond Earth should be expanded, and how it can be done.”

“Sometimes I think we’re alone in the universe, and sometimes I think we’re not. In either case the idea is quite staggering”. Arthur C. Clarke

The Eerie Silence provides excellent, scientific thinking around this conundrum.

Review from April 20, 2010 in the New York Times

Are We Alone? Science radio for thinking species

Are We Alone?

Of special interest, their program from February 15, 2010: Sex and the SETI

From their “About” page:

“Could there be life-forms on worlds far beyond the bounds of Earth?

The search for life as we don’t know it begins with understanding life as we do.

From amoebas to androids to antimatter, Are We Alone? weaves together humor and compelling interviews into themed programs about the biggest ideas in evolutionary biology, genetics, paleontology, technology, and physics – as well as cosmology and astronomy.

Are you a doubting Thomas? You’ll have plenty of company as we separate science from pseudoscience and the facts from the phony in Skeptic Check, our monthly look at critical thinking.

Are We Alone? is a one-hour program, produced by the SETI Institute and broadcast and podcast every week. The show can be found on iTunes, Juice, and other podcast sites. Radio stations carrying the program are listed on our Listening page.”
