Yesterday, on Monday July 20 the News Agency (amongst many others) reported that Stephen Hawking has teamed up with a Russian billionaire to launch a new quest to discover life on other planets. The British scientist has given his backing to Yuri Milner’s Breakthrough Initiatives project, which will provide $US100 million over the next decade to those searching for extraterrestrial intelligence. The world got excited about this breaking news story but especially the SETI community welcome this breakthrough event and major new funding for SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence).
On Tuesday, I had a chat with Roberto Perrone on BBC Three Counties Radio about this news, search for life on other planets and of course about anthropology. The episode is available from BBC Three Counties Radio: Roberto Perrone with the day’s top stories and travel news every 15 minutes.
