How do we search for ex­trater­res­tri­als? Should we send a sig­nal to alert alien civil­i­sa­tions of our pres­ence? Some say that this could be dan­ger­ous, as aliens may be ill-dis­posed to us. In this free talk for the As­tro­nom­i­cal So­ci­ety of Glas­gow, Dr Alan Penny of the Univer­sity of St An­drews ar­gues that this ob­jec­tion is flawed and dis­cusses the work of METI In­ter­na­tional, a group con­duct­ing re­search on this topic. www.th­easg.org.uk
