There is no persuasive evidence that aliens from other star systems have ever visited our planet - a situation Michael Hart dubbed "Fact A."  However, as Enrico Fermi pointed out in 1950, this is something of a surprise.  This podcast is the first in a series examining what has become known as the Fermi Paradox.

We'll talk to award winning SF author and NASA scientist Geoffrey Landis about one of his proposed solutions to this paradox, and set the stage for further explorations.  We'll also sample some powerful music by 21st Century Jazz artist Jason Robinson from his new CD "Tiresian Symmetry" and experimental sound sculptor Sleep Research Facility from the new CD "Stealth,"  based on sounds recorded in a B2 bomber hangar in the UK.
