This edition: Will Intelligence Fill the Universe?





Online media for this show is not available on our website.

Episode Details

There are three questions that speak directly to human uniqueness and purpose. 1) Does intelligent non-human life exist anywhere in the universe?; 2) Given the fullness of time, will human beings spread across the galaxies?; and 3) Is there something special about this universe that causes or even requires self-aware creatures like human to appear? Today's experts look at humankind and whether the evolution of conscious beings was an accident or a necessity. Joining host Robert Kuhn are Nobel Laureate and physicist Leon Lederman; evolutionary biologist Francisco Ayala; planetary scientist Bruce Murray and mathematician Frank Tipler; and sci-fi novelist GregoryBenford.
