Episode 743: Q&A 146: Could We Even Comprehend Aliens... as Aliens? And More..
In this week's questions show, I explain why we'd be able to recognize aliens, even if they were vastly more technologically advanced than us. Why I don't do any promotional ads on my videos, and if we have any examples of energy turning into matter. 00:00 Start 01:09 Can we actually recognize aliens? 04:18 Why don't I have sponsors? 06:33 Could we detect light pollution? 08:36 Can energy turn into matter? 10:18 How do we measure the age of the solar system? 12:52 What other prototypes will we need for Mars? 16:26 Can we extend the life of the Sun? 21:10 Is it time to map Mars? 23:43 Are there ultraviolet telescopes? 25:43 What would Starship be used for? 28:01 Can we match velocity with other stars? 29:50 Do we know the rate of the Universe's expansion? Want to be part of the questions show? Ask a short question on any video on my channel. I gather a bunch up each week and answer them here. šŸš€ OUR WEBSITE: ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā• https://www.universetoday.com/ šŸš€ PODCAST LINKS: ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā• RSS: https://universetoday.com/audio iTunes: https://universetoday.com/itunes Spotify: https://universetoday.com/spotify šŸš€ EMAIL NEWSLETTER: ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā•ā• Read by 50,000 people every Friday.

Episode 744: Interview: Practical Time Travel with Prof. Ronald Mallet
In this special interview, I was fortunate to speak with Dr. Ronald Mallet, an emeritus professor at UConn. In addition to a lifetime's work in cosmology and astrophysics, Mallet has been trying to work out how our understanding of Einstein's theories of General Relativity might lead to a practical form of time travel. https://physics.uconn.edu/person/ronald-mallett/ This interview was part of the Weekly Space Hangout for May 5th, 2021.
