Hi Everyone!

I'm Noah Hammond, I work at the SETI Institute, studying the moons of Saturn.

Below are some photos of an outreach event at the California Academy of Sciences. Jill Tater and I set up a game that let kids search for alien toys in a simulated universe of colored foam. If they didn't find any on the first scoop we asked them:

"Do you think that means there aren't any aliens in there or that you just haven't looked enough?"

Then we hit our take home message that at SETI, we have been scanning the stars looking for radio signals from other civilizations. We haven't found anything yet, but we've only searched a tiny fraction of the universe, so we think we just need to keep looking!

It was a very successful and fun activity.

To any educators out there, feel free to use this game or something like it, if you want to run an activity related to SETI.

Cheers!

¿Are the Venusian sulphuric acid clouds the by product of long dead anoxogenic photosynthetic organisms?

Posted by Andrew Planet on May 4, 2020 at 2:51pm 2 Comments

I just read the piece at the link below entitled "Study: Life might survive, and thrive, in a hydrogen world."

I'd been thinking on similar lines recently, on different atmospheres with early life, but I was considering anoxogenic bacteria whose byproduct is sulfur instead of molecular oxygen. ¿Had life evolved on Venus could its sulfuric clouds be the signature byproduct of such life with no branches ever evolving to produce the equivalent of Earth's Great…

100 years tomorrow 26th April 2020 since we looked beyond the Milky Way Galaxy

Posted by Andrew Planet on April 25, 2020 at 11:10am 0 Comments

Exactly 100 years ago tomorrow, the subject on whether this Universe is larger than the Milky Way Galaxy was brought up publicly at an event sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences, known as The Great Debate. Until then the Milky Way was thought to be this Universe.  Conference at the NAS http://www.nasonline.org/about-nas/events/annual-meeting/nas157/
