It is almost statistically impossible that Earth is home to the only living organisms that exist in the universe. But how do we locate and communicate with whatever, or whoever is out there? By exploring the depths of the ocean, scientists are getting closer to the stars and taking their learnings from underwater communication to apply it to outer space. “Whales and SETI” sets out to tell the unique story about how we may one day understand an extraterrestrial signal by better understanding the complex communication systems right here on our own planet—those of the humpback whale.
