The Inconvenient Truth About Extraterrestrial Intelligence
This past Sunday Ottawa Skeptics’ very own Dana Peters gave a fascinating talk at a local pub about extraterrestrial intelligence. It turns out there’s a lot of reasons why it will be very unlikely or difficult to come into contact with intelligent life from other planets.
Like usual, Dana’s presentation was very slick with cool graphics and animations. I highly recommend you check it out. And when you’re done watching this presentation, check out his previous lecture about brain/mind duality.
Also, if you have an iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch you can download his really cool astronomy app “Planets” for free from the App Store.
