The Kent State University Planetarium in the Department of Physics presents The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence on Feb. 17, 18 and 24, at 8 p.m. The hour-long shows will be presented in Room 108 at Smith Hall. This is the planetarium’s first in a series of free public shows for 2012.

The presentation will showcase humanity’s search for intelligent life on other worlds.

“After a tour of the lovely Ohio night sky, we will explore celestial objects that may harbor life millions to trillion miles away,” says Brett Ellman, associate professor and planetarium director. “We will then describe ongoing attempts to communicate with whomever may be listening and the huge, difficult, worldwide effort to find the needle of an intelligent message within the haystack of cosmic radio noise.

Call 330-672-2246 to make reservations for the presentation. Any individuals needing special accommodations are encouraged to contact the Department of Physics prior to the desired show date to make arrangements.
