Alien Contact: What Happens Next? | World Science Festival Brisbane

South Brisbane, Brisbane Area

25 March 2018 - 

Indicative Rate * AU$10 to AU$30

Humanity is on the verge of discovering alien life. With a diverse array of technologies joining the search, NASA estimates we’ll find definitive evidence of aliens within 20 to 30 years. Which begs the question: And then what?

Will the news inspire jubilation, despair or fear? Will aliens be seen as gods or interlopers? And what person or entity will lead the way as we grapple with our response? Evidence of alien life, whether microbial or intelligent, will provoke fundamental questions about every aspect of life in the universe, posing an unprecedented challenge for society to prepare for the consequences of such a momentous discovery.
