E.T. & The Royal Society
The Royal Society goes back 350 years and is an important group....but the panelists involved with this et debate are somewhat different and are not all scientists.
Ivan Almar, Stephen Baxter, James Benford, David Brin, Milan Cirkovic, Richard Crowther, Kathryn Denning, Steven Dick, Stephane Dumas, Frans von der Dunk, John Elliott, Lisa Kaltenegger, Claudio Maccone, Michael Michaud, Mazlan Othman, Ted Peters, Margaret Race, Seth Shostak, John Smart, Nicholas Tosca, Doug Vakoch, Clement Vidal, Felisa Wolfe-Simon, Alexander Zaitsev
Baxter, Benford, and Brin are sci-fi writers...Othman is the new UN 'alien ambassador'...and of course Shostak is part of SETI. It would be interesting to see who the others are.
