Are We Alone for 01/12/09 - Scoping Out Astronomy


Are We Alone

Are We Alone - "Scoping Out Astronomy"
A loud radio hiss is coming from the cosmos. Is it the swan song of the first giant stars of the universe?

Find out from stargazers attending the American Astronomical Society meeting in California... the brightest flash in the universe illuminates how a galaxy grows up... a planet hunter closes in on Earth-size prey. Also, find out how to spy on the universe from the comfort of your living room. Plus, the four-century-old history of the telescope... and Galileo didn't invent it!

It's the kick off to the International Year of Astronomy - so scope it out!

Guests:
You can listen to this and other episodes at http://radio.seti.org/, and be sure to check out Are We A Blog?, the companion blog to the radio show.
