Host Paul Carr welcomes panelists James Garrison, Ciro Villa, and Nick Nielsen. First, we talk about the recent finding of the GHAT team from their mining of the WISE survey,loooking for galaxies with anomalously mid infrared emission, indicating that most of the free energy in the galaxy was being harvested. This has been in the press a lot lately, and easily misinterpreted. What is a Kardashev level III civlization, and how would we know it?
WE discuss the recent optimistic declaration by NASA Cheif scientist Ellen Stofan about the search for microbial life in the solar system, and this leads us to several other topics, inlcuding robot farming and how hard revolutions can be.
