2:10 Earth to Aliens - Seth Shostak

Researchers involved in the search for extra-terrestrial life are considering what message Earth should transmit to outer space. Until now, researchers have been using radio telescope facilities to listen for signals from outer space. But scientists at a recent conference in the United States say it's time to try actively to contact intelligent life on other worlds, by sending our own message out. Not everyone is convinced and some sending a broadcast out into space could be dangerous for human kind and the planet. But one man who thinks it's a necessary step is Seth Shostak. Seth is senior astronomer and director for the Center for Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence Institute, or SETI

The Nordic nations are often held up as the template for other countries to emulate in education or social and economic development.
