Harvard astronomer Avi Loeb joins us to discuss a recent paper he and AARO director Sean Kirkpatrick authored on the physics of UAP.
The most consequential choice that our technological civilization can make is between commercial benefits and preserving nature.
The elemental composition of the first interstellar meteor will be decided by a mass spectrometer, not by the number of likes it gets on Twitter.
What is the chance that a technological gadget with an interstellar version of ChatGPT would visit Los Alamos for lunch in 1950?
Harvard astronomer Avi Loeb offers his views on the recent release of the 2022 ODNI report on unidentified anomalous phenomena.
If humans ever find interstellar CubeSats, it will change our priorities from funding military conflicts to space exploration.
How can we determine from circumstantial evidence on multiple planets whether panspermia might have occurred?
Nature established two distinct pathways for reflecting upon itself, one based on natural intelligence and the second based on artificial intelligence.
If interstellar travel agencies were to sell tickets for a ride on these relativistic planets, I would be first in line to board them.
In today’s popularity contests, it is important to remember reality is whatever it is, irrespective of how many “likes” it gets on Twitter.We don't get whatever version of reality we desire "on demand."
Imagine if every human that ever lived had a star of their own; how would this broaden our individual sense of our place in the cosmos?
Avi Loeb shares his insights on the first Galileo Project conference and the scientific search for the relics left behind by extraterrestrial intelligence.
The new telescopes of the Galileo Project provide a unique observatory with innovative capabilities. What will they help us learn about UAP?
Decades after a Quantum-Gravity theory will be discovered, there might be job advertisements for engineers who use it to build vehicles that would carry humans to the stars faster than imagined before.
Evidence of non-terrestrial objects of intelligent origin could turn up in a place many wouldn't expect: images of the sky that predate the dawn of the Space Race.
To paraphrase Darwin’s “survival of the fittest”, when it comes to our future in space, everything may hinge on “survival of the optimist.”
If some UAPs represent extraterrestrial AI systems, perhaps their appearance in recent government data was triggered by us being on the verge of developing sentient AI systems.
NASA's announcement that it will study unidentified aerial phenomena is a win-win for science, as it follows similar efforts by the DOD and civilian groups like the Galileo Project.
As advances in machine learning continue, we can expect to see fewer of the "beginner's mistakes" of its early experimental phase.
In the aftermath of Congressional hearing on UAP, it is clear governments and scientists must work together to determine their nature.
The best way for humanity to garner respect from any potential extraterrestrial neighbors is to seek new knowledge through evidence.
Avi Loeb recaps several points of discussion from a recent meeting with journalist Leslie Kean, where they discussed the Galileo Project and the search for extraterrestrial life.
We live in the gravitational potential well of the Milky Way galaxy, and therefore we age more slowly than the cosmos at large. By how much?
Space is vast so sensitive telescopes and patience are needed for an interstellar fishing trip when catching extraterrestrial technology.
As The Debrief looks back on its first year in business, one of the big areas we have covered involves the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, or SETI.
Virtual reality, tailored to match our wishful thinking, sways us away from the humility of gaining new scientific knowledge.
During my routine morning jog in the woods, I saw four pairs of ducks swimming in a narrow...
"I wish I was a fly on the wall of your porch over the past few months." Avi Loeb discusses the rise of the Galileo Project, and his search for life in the cosmos.
A new proposal in Washington could lead to the establishment of an "Anomaly Surveillance and Resolution Office" within the DOD.
This week we examine the cycles of UFO interest throughout time, the pattern that emerges, and why current events involving the subject may represent something new for the future of UAP studies.
