Informal Talk: Mr. Robert Naeye – “The Possible Signal from Proxima Centauri”
Friday, 29th January 2021 @ 19:00 - 21:00 GMT
This informal and/or short talk will take place on Friday, January 29th from 19:00 to 21:00.
The exact format will depend on the individual talk itself.
In this talk, Bob Naeye will be joining us from America again.
Bob will be talking about the recent announcement of a possible signal from Proxima Centauri – what some have dubbed ‘the new “Wow!” signal’; what are the chances that it’s real, and if it is, what are the ramifications? Should we reply, and if so who should have the right to speak on behalf of the entire world?
A bit of a mix of astronomy and philosophy 😊
The format of this talk will see Bob talking for the first part (other webcams/mics will be off during this), followed by an open discussion with all participants (with your webcams/mics on if you choose).
Please note, due to COVID-19 this meeting is ONLINE-ONLY.
Society members have been sent Zoom & YouTube links.
A recording IS available for this lecture, to LAS members only, on request.
If you still have the invite e-mail (sent 8th January 2021 @ 10:06), you can also use the YouTube link from that.
With best wishes – Mark
