Best-selling author and Harvard astrophysicist Avi Loeb returns to share his observations on the Pentagon UAP report and how scientists - not the military or politicians - are best qualified to survey the sky and collect more data.
Author and astrophysics rock star Avi Loeb returns to the show to talk about the Pentagon report and the role that science can play to help solve the mystery behind Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAPs - the new government term for UFOs).
You can buy Avi's recent bestseller, "Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth" on Amazon. In this break-through book, Avi Loeb -- Harvard's top astronomer -- lays out his controversial theory that our solar system was recently visited by advanced alien technology from a distant star.
Fresh from reading the Pentagon's unclassified report, Avi shares additional thoughts about documenting the existence of UAPs/UFOs, and why scientists are more qualified than the military or politicians to collect, interpret and communicate the data.
