Support The Other Side of Midnight!





How the Webb Space Telescope Will PROVE the Reality of Extraterrestrial Life

My guest tonight, Dr. Chandra Wickramasinghe, over the years has been an honored visitor to “The Other Side of Midnight” several times; in these past shows, we’ve discussed many fascinating things … ranging from his scientific proof, decades ago, that interstellar space is TEEMING with the ‘organic, complex building blocks of life’; to his professional and personal relationships with highly-controversial “Steady State” cosmologist, Sir Fred Hoyle; to his longtime friendship with my old, dear friend … Sir Arthur C. Clarke.

Tonight promises to bring all these past “wide-ranging conversations” to a dramatic point:

Writes Chandra, in a paradigm-breaking, pre-publication, scientific “Webb paper” he’s currently co-authoring:

“New developments in astronomy, biology and space science appear to favour a unified model of biological origins and the origin and evolution of the Universe. We discuss new observations of very high red-shift galaxies, emerging from the new James Webb Space Telescope, and argue that only by combining the two ‘problems of origins’ can cosmology — and astrobiology — be properly understood. Both the Universe, and life that is an intrinsic component of it, appears to be more consistent with cosmological models that do NOT have ‘a single point origin’ … as, for instance, in the standard Big Bang cosmologies ….”

Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe is an internationally acclaimed astronomer and one of the foremost pioneers of modern astrobiology. Chandra is famous for his pioneering studies on the carbonaceous nature of cosmic dust and the prevalence of extraterrestrial life. He is a recipient of several international awards and honorary doctorates and was a former Fellow of Jesus College, Cambridge and a Professor at Cardiff University for 40 years.

He is currently an Honorary Professor and Director of the Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology at the University of Buckingham, an Honorary Professor and Director of the University of Ruhuna Centre for Astrobiology Sri Lanka, Honorary Professor at the Sir John Kotelawala Defence University of Sri Lanka, Associate Professor the National Institute of Fundamental Studies, Sri Lanka.  He is also a founder member of the newly-formed Institute for the Study of Panspermia and Astro-economics in Gifu, Japan. He has written over 30 books and 300 scientific papers, over 60 of these being in the journal Nature.

One Comment so far:

  1. I understand why richard does not understand why scientists do not appear to follow the fundamentals of scientific principles and the spirit of discovery when faced with new ideas, that may threaten the current scientific orthodoxies. This is because he has a clear and honest approach to sorting facts and reasonable speculation from embedded dogma in scientific thought. The idea of using evidence to test ideas and improve the hypothesis with a view to perfect the level of correct interpretation of any area of knowledge is a basis for the development of scientific understanding.
    Unfortunately science is not always seen to follow this method of developing important issues. But this is not only a science problem, and is evidenced in many areas of academic study. In 1961, the philosopher of science T . kuhn wrote an inportant papaer, ” The Structure of Scientific Revolutions” described how entenched thery is stubborn to accept new ideas and many such ideas never get a fair hearing and die, but sometimes they take hold and a war between new ideas and the established and entrenched dogma takes place and if successful a new Paradigm can take hold and energises the subject because the etablished academics have to accept the new ideas or become irrelevant, this process can take a period of time, and some times the prevaling orthodoxy remains in place, If your entire carear is in a defunct area o knowlwdge it hard to give it up, especially if you have a position of seniorority, and can influence the outcomes and decision making blocking the future development of a new arear of research.
    I believe this is seen in many areas of study , however it does not change the situation that Richard and Chandra have every reason to expect the opportunity to test their ideas, which I feel have great validity. My best wishes to you both. harry w.
