Description: The Interview: This month Cardiff University’s Professor Mark Hannam tells us more about the recent observation of colliding neutron stars and this window into a new realm of astronomy.
Q&A: Listeners’ questions via email, Facebook & Twitter take us on a journey into the astronomy issues that have always plagued our understanding or stretched our credulity. This month we’re tackling a question about the Drake Equation:
“It strikes me that the Drake equation sets the probability of life at either (1) pretty close to zero – in which case surely we’d be worth a visit. OR (2) very numerous – in which case there’s every chance alien life might be driving past on their annual holiday. Or somewhere in between!
I think I’m saying that, yes overall I agree with the saying “seeing is believing”, but at the same time I don’t taking not seeing as proof of non existence. I’ve never seen a Polar Bear (you don’t in Leeds) but I’m pretty sure they are out there.”
