Paul Gilster’s Centauri Dreams is one of the most knowledgable and interesting places to find commentary and discussion of topics related to space exploration, SETI and humanity’s future in space.
Here, in a three-part series of blog posts, he discusses EARTH IN HUMAN HANDS and in particular my treatment of SETI and how it relates to visions and challenges of our own future here on Earth, how we might find ET civilizations who have survived their own version of the Anthropocene, and how visions of our sustainable future dovetail with ideas about interstellar travel and communication. I love it when somebody reads my book and seems to really get it!
Part 1: SETI in the Anthropocene.
Part 2: Looking for ‘Technosignatures’
Part 3: The Starship in our Future.
