Speaking with aliens

How do we know what alien life is? Would we even know it if we found it? And if we did, would we be able to coexist or even communicate with aliens? How can we prepare humanity for such an encounter?

Artist Aleksandra Mir (Space Tapestry and We Can't Stop Thinking About the Future) explores these questions with Clara Sousa-Silva (a Quantum Astrochemist at MIT tasked with finding alien life on a molecular level) and Jill A. Stuart (Space Law expert and director at METI international, working on different scenarios for encounters with intelligent life).
