Manage episode 257298224 series 1555033
Hi to all Crononauts!
It is an enourmous pleasure for us to offer you this interview with Messaging ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence (METI) founder Dr. Douglas Vakoch.
The interview came along as a part of our episode analyzing the European Sci-Fi masterpiece Solaris, directed by Andrei Tarkovsky and based on the novel by Stanislaw Lem.
Much like in the film, during the interview we discuss with Dr. Vakoch the possibility of intelligent life existing thoughout the universe, and the different options available to us to try and and and communicate with them.
We are so grateful to Dr Vakoch for the time and patience he dedicated to answer all of our questions and to explain very interesting concepts, that has made us see the film and our universe in a different light.
