Avi Loeb, PhD, Harvard’s top astronomer, is the Frank B. Baird, Jr., Professor of Science at Harvard University.

We are not alone, believes Avi Loeb, chair of Harvard’s Department of Astronomy, founding director of Harvard’s Black Hole Initiative, director of the Institute for Theory and Computation within the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and author. Loeb and his team have set up a telescope on the roof of the Harvard College Observatory to look for evidence of extraterrestrial life. They are looking for strange objects, such as the one sighted in 2017 by scientists at a Hawaiian observatory that was moving so quickly that Loeb claims it could only have come from another star. Join Loeb on March 14 for fascinating discussion about his search for extraterrestrial life, the importance of curiosity and other mysteries of our universe
