Astro Brief: Listening for ET

SETI Institute

Humanity is always on the lookout for intelligent alien life, but how is this done today?

The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) has been listening for over 70 years to radio signals from space, analyzing for evidence of intelligent alien life. Join us this week as Mike discusses a new technique used to filter earth-based signals from space-based signals, bringing greater precision to detection methods.

Astro Brief is a collaboration between KSMU, the Missouri Space Grant, and MSU's Department of Physics, Astronomy and Materials Science. Hosted by Dr. Mike Reed, Astro Brief focuses on astronomical events, the field of astronomy, and astronomy-related guests. It airs Thursdays at 9:45 am on KSMU.

Distinguished Professor of the Missouri State University Department of Physics, Astronomy and Materials Science.
