Episode 12 — Understanding Potential Alien Technosignatures

August 20, 2020

This week’s guest is Adam Frank, a professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Rochester in New York, who has received the first-ever NASA grant to begin cataloging potential alien techno-signatures in a non-radio spectrum.  The hunt for potential alien technology is one of the sexiest topics in astrophysics at the moment and Frank doesn’t disappoint.  We cover everything from how we might find such technology in our own solar system to super-advanced civilizations that might harness supermassive black holes for cosmic scale supercomputers.
