Fermi's Paradox Revisited by Dr. Jeff Kuhn, UH Institute for Astronomy. Recorded 02/15/2013 at the Advanced Technology Research Center in Pukalani, Maui, Hawaii. Where are the extrasolar civilizations and do we have the technology to find them? We now know that we're surrounded by habitable extrasolar planet. Even half a century ago, before we knew of any extrasolar planets, Fermi speculated that the absence of any "proof" for extraterrestrial civilization could be important new for life on Earth. Today his query is even more compelling. This talk will discribe a new idea for completing a nearby extraterrestrial cosmic census and describe some of the technology that exists today to undertake it.
