The Universe: Search for ET

Ray Kurzweil, SETI senior astronomer Seth Shostak, and other experts will be featured on The “Universe: Search for ET,” kicking off a new series on the History Channel, “The Universe,” Tuesday, August 28 at at 9:00pm, 8:00 Central. “In a galaxy filled with a billion stars, in a universe filled with a hundred billion galaxies–are we alone? SETI–the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence–is a privately funded project using radio telescopes and optical telescopes to scan the stars for signals. NASA is planning missions to Mars, Jupiter’s sixth moon, Europa, and Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, to look for primitive, microbial life in ice concentrations. Whether we discover primitive or intelligent life, how will that knowledge impact humankind’s view of itself? Cutting-edge computer graphics are used to bring the universe down to earth to show what life would be like on other planets, and to imagine what kind of life forms might evolve in alien atmospheres.”

    I heard that some evidence of life (silica deposits) was found on Mars, which is really exciting to think about. I missed this show, but hopefully I can catch it on reruns sometime!
