The idea of life beyond Earth is one that has fascinated many of us from a young age and has made its way into much of our popular culture.

Dr. Cami (Western professor and SETI scientist) introduces his research into molecular spectroscopy and how he has used it to find amino acids, basic protein building blocks, in space!

Dr. de Looze draws upon his extensive background in linguistics to discuss the basic components of communication and what a conversation with alien life may look like.
