Walkabout the Galaxy
extraterrestrial intelligence, Fermi paradox
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
Our guest, André Bormanis, has spent a considerable amount of time thinking about extraterrestrial intelligence, as well as warp travel, holodecks, artificial life forms, and more. Having spent more than a decade as an advisor and producer on the Star Trek franchise, André is now an executive producer and writer on "The Orville", Seth MacFarlane's trekkiest of shows. André joins the astroquarks for a discussion of Trek, humor, and the vexing Fermi paradox. Maybe we're just too early to the party. Check it out, and check out "The Orville", plus a special Trek trivia on this episode of Walkabout the Galaxy.
Long before Russian interference, destructive interference has been around helping make the world a better place rather than a more insane place. While our name may sound like a redundant claim to chaos, destructive interference helps you build great things by getting rid of the riff raff. Destructive interference has brought you: colorful gas station parking lot oil films, psychedelic soap bubbles, incredibly high resolution radio and optical telescopes, the discovery of the constancy of the speed of light, and noise-canceling headphones. Destructive interference: building a better world two waves at a time.
