Episode 94: What Alien Intelligence Means for Humanity, with Don Lincoln

The Star Spot

Feature Guest: Don Lincoln Humanoid... grey in colour… almond shaped eyes. You all know exactly what I’m describing, but have you ever wondered just how the public’s perception of aliens came to be? Today we’re joined at The Star Spot by Professor Don Lincoln, renowned particle physicist and author of Alien Universe: Extraterrestrial Life in Our Minds and in the Cosmos. Does our conversation and beliefs about aliens tell us more about us than them, and how might first contact with an alien intelligence change everything.Current in Space Star Trek-like alien interactions might be possible after all... if you live at the centre of a globular cluster. Then, we look at a conspiracy theory that's no longer so out there, because Planet X is back, with a vengeance. And gardening arrives at the ISS, meaning astronauts may eventually enjoy the fruits of their labour. Extremophiles are also heading to the space station, as we test their habitability in Mars-like conditions. About Our Guest Don Lincoln is a senior physicist at Fermilab, America’s flagship particle physics laboratory, and adjunct Professor of Physics at the University of Notre Dame. He is co-discover of the top quark and was part of the team that discovered the Higgs boson in 2012. Professor Lincoln is the author of several public science books, including Understanding the Universe: From Quarks to the Cosmos, The Large Hadron Collider: The Extraordinary Story of the Higgs Boson and Other Things That Will Blow Your Mind and Alien Universe: Extraterrestrials in our Minds and in the Cosmos.

Don Lincoln, “The Large Hadron Collider” (Johns Hopkins UP, 2014)

New Books in Technology

Don Lincoln‘s new book, The Large Hadron Collider: The Extraordinary Story of the Higgs Boson and Other Stuff That Will Blow Your Mind (Johns Hopkins UP, 2014), presents an insider’s view of the largest physics experiment of our time and the discoveries that have come out of it over the past few years. A senior scientist at Fermilab and collaborator on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), Lincoln provides a thorough and personal account of its assembly and early years of operation, including a disastrous malfunction just days after turning on, the unfolding saga of the Higgs boson, and the emergence of exciting new questions that can now be asked. Throughout the chapters, he weaves in relevant scientific details to explain the operation of the accelerator, its massive detectors, and everything they can tell us about the universe. Packed with rich analogies and approachable personal anecdotes, this book will be of interest to anyone curious about modern particle physics and the enormous international collaboration that is currently underway to further our understanding of this exciting field.
