Meet and Greet with Dr. Seth Shostak of the SETI institute

It was a pleasure to welcome Dr. Shostak to our School of Physics for two presentations, as well as a GAP-organized discussion with current graduate students. Seth had the opportunity to report on the scientific hunt for extraterrestrial intelligence and the progress made over the last decades as well as the possible discoveries to come in the next years. We also were pleased to hear about Dr. Shostak’s professional and personal experience, from a graduate student at CalTech to Director of the SETI institute, and his advice on what makes a career in science successful. We thank all the people who attended this conversation.
