watched the W5 show on "the signal"

Rhonda told me about the W5 episode about a "signal from space." I finally had a chance to watch it on the CTV web site.

Dan Riskin, a Science and Technology Specialist on CTV News, published the piece on Friday, March 19, 2021 9:00AM EDT. The title is Signal detected: Are we alone in the endless abyss of space?

(I recognise him from the Discovery Channel.)

Riskin features the ARO operated by Thoth. Riskin talked about SETI research and interviewed Sara Seager of MIT. She talked about exoplanets and referred to the signal received in December via the Breakthru Listen project. Dan Werthimer of Berkeley talked about the past work at Arecibo and the new Pano-SETI which will scan the whole sky. Roger Hanlon talked about octopuses, an alien-like creature here on Earth (not unlike the Giger's Facehugger). Riskin also talked about Oumuamua, a very special object, still being intensely researched.
