(Hawaii News Now) - Does intelligent life exist beyond Earth? If so, how might we find it?  These will be some of the questions discussed at the second Sheraton Waikiki Explorers of the Universe lecture when Dr. Jill Tarter, chair of the SETI Institute, speaks at the UH Manoa Kennedy Theatre on May 3rd.

If you've seen the movie "Contact," you are already familiar with some of Dr. Tarter's life and work—she was the inspiration for the main character (Dr. Eleanor "Ellie" Arroway) played by Jodie Foster.

Tickets are free but required, and the supply is limited. Tickets can be obtained online here.
