This is a very exciting episode for me! Avi Loeb is one of my dream guests! Without a doubt, Avi Loeb is my favorite Astronomer. Abraham (Avi) Loeb is the Frank B. Baird, Jr., Professor of Science at Harvard University. He received a Ph.D. in Physics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel at age 24. Loeb has written 8 books, including the book he is here to promote Extraterrestrial (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2021), and about 800 papers on a wide range of topics, including black holes, the first stars, the search for extraterrestrial life, and the future of the Universe. He had been the longest-serving Chair of Harvard's Department of Astronomy (2011-2020), Founding Director of Harvard's Black Hole Initiative (2016-present), and Director of the Institute for Theory and Computation (2007-present) within the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.
In this episode, we talk about his radical position that we already have the proof of Extraterrestrial intelligence. His book is a shot across the bow in the scientific community that would rather not even consider the idea we now have proof that we are not alone in the universe. We also talk light sails, black holes, yours truly being the first to review his work with an F-bomb and we end on the calculation he did the morning of the interview for detecting life in other galaxies on the back of a scrap envelope. This was recorded in November when I read Extraterrestrial. It is coming out this month so pick it up and read it. Note: I managed to only reference Star Trek Twice.
