Hi and welcome to Space with Sarah. When I go out into the world and tell people that I’m an astrophysicist I often get a ton of really interesting questions. Today we’re going to talk about when an earth-like planet could have formed. Many people, myself included, seem really fascinated by the idea of life

Fermi Paradox: Intelligent Civilizations

November 25, 2019 at 12:16 am | Articles, Blog | Ruben Talley -

The problem with intelligent aliens is that once your civilization becomes technologically advanced enough to wipe them out, it’s already too late. Today we will be beginning my Fermi paradox series. In this episode, we will be looking at intelligent aliens or technologically advanced civilizations, tied in with the Fermi paradox. The question that asks:

Do Alien Civilizations Invariably Destroy Themselves?

November 21, 2019 at 6:16 pm | Articles, Blog | Ruben Talley -

All too often, speculating about alien civilizations is tied directly to the only civilization that we have so far observed, our own. We literally work from a sampling of one, and until we actually detect another civilization that won’t change, no matter how anthropocentric and uncertain it might seem. After all, we are human, and

Machine Civilizations

at 1:16 pm | Articles, Blog | Ruben Talley -

One of the creepiest aspects of pondering life in the universe is when you remove biology from the equation completely. Explored many times in science fiction, the concept of machine life can go from benign and almost human, such as Mr. Data from Star Trek, or it can also go the opposite way as in

Is This Why We Haven’t Found Alien Civilizations? | STELLAR

Thank you to Draper and its Hack The Moon initiative for supporting PBS Digital Studios. People have always dreamed of ways to be closer to the stars. That’s what brought us here to Mauna Kea in Hawaii. From this spot, we can stand nearer to the sky, and see farther and clearer than almost anywhere

Are We The First Advanced Civilization in The Solar System?

at 8:14 am | Articles, Blog | Ruben Talley -

Humans are believed to be the most technologically advanced civilization that’s ever set foot on Earth, or really anywhere in the Solar System. But are we the first? Could there have been an advanced civilization that walked the Earth millions or even billions of years ago, and then died out long ago, their technology and

Are We Among the First Civilizations in the Universe?

November 19, 2019 at 4:15 pm | Articles, Blog | Ruben Talley -

When discussing SETI and the Fermi Paradox the focus tends to be on distance, the idea that an alien civilization could exist in relatively close proximity to earth enough that we could detect them. So far we haven’t found anything. But there is another aspect to the potential existence of exocivilizations; that they may be

Why spiritualizing the cosmos is a disservice to science and religion | Michelle Thaller

at 11:17 am | Articles, Blog | Ruben Talley -

Chris, you ask the question about how religion affects our view of the cosmos. And the first thing I think about is simply the history of being human. There were so many things about the universe that we didn’t understand. Thousands of years ago, we watched the seasons change or we observed things like thunderstorms

When Will We Be a Type III Civilization? Controlling All The Energy of the Milky Way

November 16, 2019 at 11:20 am | Articles, Blog | Ruben Talley -

Now, I’m no futurist, but I think I can predict one thing. Humans love to use energy, and in the future, we’re going to use even more of the stuff. Let’s hope it’s clean energy, like that handy source of photons in the sky: the Sun. Not dirty forms of energy, like screams, unobtainium, liquid
