The final episode of Season 1 picks up the thread of Episode 5  - the Search for ExtraTerrestrial Artifacts, or SETA. If we find something that looks odd while exploring the solar system, how can we separate an authentic artifact from wishful thinking? If ET uses the internet to contact us, how could we be sure it was authentic?

We talk to scientist and space entrepreneur Ben McGee about his paper on Xenoarchaeology, or the search for ancient alien artifacts, and to Dr. H. Paul Shuch about the experimental website Invitation to ETI at

Music by Sleep Research Facility, Curlew, DJ Spooky, Ahleuchatistas and Jason Robinson.
