Search for intelligent life in the universe
The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe by Jane WagnerThis was such a fun read! I found myself hearing Lily Tomlin and all her voices in my head which had me bursting into laughter out in public. Thats a five star experience if ever there was one!
Heres a part that really got me:
You dont know what its like!
When they turned three, my doctor prescribed Ritalin--
I wouldnt dream of giving drugs to my children,
but it does help when I take it myself.
....Sometimes it gets so bad, I brew up some
Sleepytime herb tea, pour it over ice, serve it in Spiderman
tell them its a new-flavor
The running gags, especially Soup, also caught me in surprise moments of laughter.

Moon pirates, killer space monkeys and some serious father issues are all thrown at Brad Pitt in 'Ad Astra. Remember those viral UFO videos you saw last year? The government would like you to forget them, please. Brad Pitt says his new space movie, "Ad Astra," won't have a clear position on whether humanity is alone in the universe. Astronomers are finding more and more alien worlds that may be capable of supporting Earth-like life, but none of them so far are carbon copies of our home world. One of the key determinants of which worlds can host life may lie in the motion of their oceans.
The show, Tomlin's second Broadway billing as a solo performer, follows Tomlin as she performs various characters or persona, all while wearing simple black pants and a white blouse. The show appears disparate at first, but becomes unified under the sensibility of the opening "bag lady" persona as the performance progresses. The show is often praised or considered controversial for its feminist material, most notably the compressed history of the feminist movement offered in Act 2. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The hunt for E. New research suggests that alien life may not be as widespread as we had hoped. When it comes to hunting for alien civilizations, a key question is how plentiful intelligent extraterrestrials are in the universe — but the answer to that question depends on a lot of knowledge scientists don't have yet. In , Frank Drake, an astronomer and hunter of extraterrestrial intelligence, devised an equation to calculate the probability of hearing from an intelligent, communicating alien civilization. The Drake equation relies on the values of several constants to determine how widespread such civilizations might be, how likely they are to evolve and how likely they are to have broadcast when we were able to detect. While some of the numbers, such as how many stars have planets around them, are fairly well-known, others, such as the fraction of those worlds with life, remain uncertain.
The observatory helps NASA keep track of orbiting satellites. If there are advanced civilizations out there in the cosmos, the chances are they will have tried to contact us. Might they be using laser-based communications to do that? We have not idea what form they would take, and whether we would be able to detect them. Perhaps they can only ever be recognizable to us 21st-century humans if they already exist on our own planet. Boyajian in , could be explained by the existence of an alien megastructure around the star periodically blocking light.
