Speak Your Mind

Speak Your Mind: Alien AMA

Whenever I look into the night sky, I can’t help but wonder if we are alone in the universe. Is there life on other worlds, millions and billions of light years away? If there is, will we ever know about them? Do we want to? What would that mean for my idea of self? But, more importantly, what would we talk about?

Bill Nye, in addition to telling creationist parents not to saddle their kids with their crazy beliefs, has tackled that last question.

His questions include: Why are you here and How did you evolve? I like to think I would have the presence of mind to ask intelligent questions, but I think I would actually be too shocked to speak. What can I say? I’m not very good at conversation.

If you had the chance, what questions would you ask an alien visitor?
