On this episode we’re talking about how we would organize ourselves if we were to discover something completely outside of the box — the presence of an extraterrestrial civilization. We receive signals all the time. Everything from energetic waves on the electromagnetic spectrum, to the sounds of gravitational waves. It’s easy to dismiss a signal as nothing more than normal space noise – or to get overexcited, and confuse normal transmissions with with extraterrestrial communications. Clearly, this is a big project – one that requires many brilliant minds who are willing to work together. Anyone who’s been involved in a large scale project before knows that collaborations on that scale come with their own unique set of challenges.
