SETI: Astronomy as a Contact Sport with Jill Tarter

Jill Tarter

From the Host/CEO of Ideas Road Show, Howard Burton

"I had the good fortune to meet Jill Tarter back in 2007 when I invited her to give a public lecture at the physics institute I was then running.  The institute held many public talks, but Jill's stood out strongly: thoughtful, rigorously scientific and thoroughly captivating.  So when I started Ideas Roadshow five years later, Jill was an obvious candidate to interview.  Once again she didn't disappoint, marrying eloquence, humility and scientific rigor to produce a profoundly inspirational story of SETI's past, present and future.  I'm sure you'll enjoy the video and eBook of our conversation.  I certainly enjoyed having it."
