My musings about “Contact with Aliens? Think Before You Call”

Recently Dr. Seth Shostak, SETI Institute’s senior astronomer, wrote a very good article, about what you should know before sharing or assert that you have extraordinary evidence, either photos or testimonials about aliens and similar topics.

I took the liberty to translate that article to Spanish, which can read full here, but in this – my blog – I would like to emphasise a list of frequently asked questions, used to take a moment and think about things, before heading out to the street claiming that we there is evidence that aliens are among us.

¿Cree tener evidencia extraordinaria? piense antes de llamar o escribir

Saludos,

Hace poco el Dr. Seth Shostak, astrónomo senior del Instituto SETI, escribió un artículo bastante bueno, sobre lo que usted debe tener en cuenta antes de compartir o afirmar que se tiene evidencia extraordinaria, ya sea fotos o testimonios sobre extraterrestres y temas similares.

Me tomé la libertad de traducir dicho artículo al español, el cuál pueden leer completo aquí, pero en este -mi blog personal- me gustaría hacer énfasis en una lista de preguntas frecuentes, que sirve para tomarnos un momento y pensar las cosas, antes de salir a la calle afirmando que tenemos pruebas de que los extraterrestres están entre nosotros.

Ruedas de telescopio espacial Kepler se han detenido, pero aún hay mucho por estudiar

Saludos,

Hace un par de años tuve la oportunidad de hablar sobre la misión espacial Kepler, de NASA, ante los asistentes a Campus Party México, en el año 2011.
Pueden ver la charla que di ese día, aquí:

Pero hace un par de meses que comenzaron a fallar ciertas partes del orbitador Kepler, que ahora le impiden mover el telescopio y apuntarlo a las estrellas y planetas a estudiar, poniendo en riesgo terminal la misión.

Es por eso que me di a la tarea de traducir y compartir con ustedes el siguiente artículo que habla sobre esto. Espero que sea de su agrado y les permita apreciar la magnífica misión que es- ha sido- Kepler.

SETIconII journal day 6 2nd part – SETIconII diario de viaje día 6 2a parte

Greetings!

After several months of no writing, today I finally get back with my narrative of the SETIconII journal, now with the 2nd part of the 6th day of travel. Enjoy!

*Robert J. Sawyer signature and some kind words for yours truly: For Lourdes – a great friend! who helps get the word at! with all best wishes! R. J . Sawyer*

I stayed there the 1st half of the talk and then went off checking the other talks **at this moment I am having a little problem remembering exactly what happened, so I will write the details later, but here are the important things:  at some point I went to some of the fireside talks, one with Mary Roach but the other one was with Mae Jamison, at the end of her intervire, the public could ask questions – she talked about 2100 Year Star Ship”…

SETIconII_Journal_22

… that is about building an actual inter-stelar ship and all the things that are necesary to take a bunch of hominids to a nearby star.

It’s an enterprise that would take 100 years and the collaboration of the entire world to achieve! So my question was about if they have information of the prohect, in other languages… to make a long story short…

I volunteer to translate their website to Spanish!!

After that -at the end I had a picture taken with Mae and the Cat-o-naut!! When it ended I went to see the short movie “Do Not Erase”, produced by Kevin Grazier
