‘New Golden Era of Space Exploration’ – Michio Kaku & Stephen Colbert

This is an interesting discussion from the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where Michio Kaku talks space exploration and potential contact with aliens. Michio Kaku is incredibly excited for the second golden era of space exploration but he does not think it is a great idea to alert extraterrestrials to human existence and he explains why.

Tons of cool ideas in a five-minute chat. Of course, I have my own ideas about alien contact, and I think Kaku would actually enjoy Planet Ugh based on what he says here. I’m also digging that he and Stephen Colbert talk about ‘Golden Age Scifi’ because that’s something near and dear to my heart. I’ll be talking more about that soon. Enjoy the clip!
