Douglas Vakoch – Active METI: Calling the Cosmos

2016, Science & Technology, Space
Presented By: Douglas Vakoch

On the pro-side of the METI debate is METI President and Professor of Clinical Psychology Dr. Douglas Vakoch. METI, which stands for Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence is the act of reaching out to alien life forms to find out who might be in our universe. In his section of the debate, Douglas discusses why we should be using active METI to search our universe and why this act of calling the cosmos will help us join the galactic club and improve ours and other societies.
