TAKE AWAYS
We may be the last generation that doesn't know if we're alone in the Universe.
The science of astrobiology is exploding and for the first time we have the capacity to search the distant stars for life, intelligent or otherwise.
Given the stunning progress that science is making in the search for cosmic life, should they be taking UFOs seriously as another way to find it?
If we find alien life, what should we expect it to be like? Will it be like us? Will we be able to talk to it? Will it want to make contact or conquest?
BIO: Astrophysicist Adam Frank is a leading expert on the final stages of evolution for stars like the sun, and his computational research group at the University of Rochester has developed advanced supercomputer tools for studying how stars form and how they die. A self-described \"evangelist of science,\" he is also committed to showing others the beauty and power of science, and exploring the proper context of science in culture.
