Nathan Robinson, in Current Affairs, has covered the same ground as my last post here, Avi Loeb’s Extraterrestrial. Nathan is a gifted writer and journalist. Hats off! Anyway, if you read my post, “Do We Care If We Are Alone?, ” you may be interested in this: https://www.currentaffairs.org/2021/05/were-not-alone-in-the-universe?fbclid=IwAR3-3deXeN8gHH2BRNPw60VnW1qL2uq-iXl-R4rV5dYWlx1BADuS7dw3838
Avi Loeb’s best-selling book, Extraterrestrial, asks the question: Do we care about our origins? And, explores some of the ethics of space travel. It’s about discovery! Remember Carl Sagan?
