A Prelude To A Technosignatures Discussion

Technosignatures Workshop: Looking at Searching for Life Beyond Earth, NASA

"In April 2018, new interest arose in Congress for NASA to begin supporting the scientific search for technosignatures as part of the agency's search for life. As part of that effort, the agency is hosting the NASA Technosignatures Workshop in Houston on Sept. 26-28, 2018, with the purpose of assessing the current state of the field, the most promising avenues of research in technosignatures and where investments could be made to advance the science. A major goal is to identify how NASA could best support this endeavor through partnerships with private and philanthropic organizations."

Webcast

Keith's note: Something worth watching in advance of this workshop (which will be webcast). Watch this on a large screen with the sound turned up.

"In 1977 NASA launched two golden records into deep space on the Voyager I and II probes. Having left our solar system, they are the most distant human-made objects. The records carry sounds and images of our planet and human brainwaves."
