Where the #&%@ are all the aliens?!?
Description: The Fermi Paradox asks if there's such a high probability of alien civilizations, why haven't we found them yet? Maybe they aren't there after all, or maybe we're looking in the wrong places. Our panel will discuss all of this, and maybe figure it out once and for all!
Lou Antonelli, Chris Donahue, William Ledbetter, Geoffrey A. Landis
This is one of my best ever alternate histories.
