Guest: Laurance Doyle, Principal Investigator, Center for the Study of Life in the Universe, SETI Institute In the last two decades, astronomers have identified thousands and thousands of planets orbiting stars outside of our solar system. According to NASA, many of them could potentially be habitable. Laurance Doyle has spent his entire career on this quest. He’s a member of the NASA Kepler Science Mission looking for habitable planets in space. And he’s also a research scientist at the SETI Institute, where some of his work entails developing a plan to decipher whatever messages alien life might try to send us one day.
