    For decades, humans have sent probes into space to explore distant planets, and to go in search of evidence of things like life on other worlds. If humans engage in such activities, why wouldn't aliens do the same? Is it possible that Earth has ever been surveilled by extraterrestrial technologies, and that searches for non-terrestrial artifacts could reveal their presence close to Earth?  Beatriz Villarroel is a postdoctoral researcher holding the position of Nordic Fellow with Stockholm University, Sweden. Among other positions she holds, she is Principal Investigator of the "Vanishing & Appearing Sources during a Century of Observations" project, otherwise known as the VASCO Network. This week, she joins us to discuss the scientific search for non-terrestrial artifacts on The Micah Hanks Program.  The story doesn't end here... become an X Subscriber and get access to even more weekly content and monthly specials.

    For centuries, astronomers have claimed to see strange lights and other phenomena on the Moon. Ranging from points of light, to mysterious colored bands, and even images since the dawn of the Space Age depicting curious structures, many have wondered if Earth's Moon could be far more mysterious than most would ever contend. 

    This week on The Micah Hanks Program, we examine sightings of mysterious transient lunar phenomena (TLP) observed in locations like the Aristarchus crater, as well as a mysterious set of structures or "spires" that have caused debate for decades. Could there be more to the Moon and its many secrets than conventional astronomical thinking has taught us?

    As the search for extraterrestrial intelligence from beyond Earth continues, many scientists are now wondering whether the eventual discovery of ET may come in the form of a technology--perhaps even artificial intelligence--that was created by aliens, rather than the actual biological lifeforms themselves.  Joining us this week to discuss these possibilities is Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at the SETI institute. We dive into the potential existence of alien A.I, as well as NASA's forthcoming UAP study, and much more this week on The Micah Hanks Program.  The story doesn't end here... become an X Subscriber and get access to even more weekly content and monthly specials.
