Many astronomers believe we are closing in on the hunt for proof of alien life on other worlds… but where will it be found, and how will we find it? Among the methods being used are searches for technosignatures, biosignatures, and even interstellar probes that might have been “delivered” to various parts of the galaxy by intelligent extraterrestrials.

In the search for alien life, how does UAP fit into the equation, and what are the perspectives of scientists on how it should be studied? Joining us this week is Jacob Haqq Misra, Ph.D., a senior research investigator at Blue Marble Space Institute of Science. His areas of focus include planetary habitability, extraterrestrial life, environmental ethics, and space settlement, and he joins us to discuss all of his research interests, and how science can be applied to the study of UFOs this week on The Micah Hanks Program.
