Dr. Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer at the SETI Institute

A congressional committee convened on May 21, 2014 and discussed extraterrestrial life on other worlds and in a back door way, UFOs, and such fringe topics as the ancient alien theory. Two key members of Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) were on Capitol Hill to discuss the SETI mission and the current state of the scientific search for life elsewhere in the universe before the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. 

Senior Astronomer for SETI, Dr. Seth Shostak was joined by Dan Wertimer, the director of SETI Research at the University of California, Berkeley, to discuss technical details on SETI’s research, funding problems, scenarios in which extraterrestrial life might be discovered, and a good dose of flying saucer popular culture which Shostak has come to describe as, “the giggle factor.”
