When you look into the night sky, you might see stars. Seth Shostak hopes he’ll see aliens. This week on Match Volume, Annenberg Media’s Nisha Venkat chats with Shostak about his research at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute in Mountain View, California. Shostak is a senior astronomer at the institute, and he’s spent the last 31 years looking for E.T. Venkat and Shostak discuss how to find an alien, the Fermi Paradox, machine learning and more.
