The HBO series VICE will be broadcasting an episode with a segment entitled "Are we alone?" starting June 1 at 11pm EST. It will be available on HBO streaming service, HBO GO, at 7:30pm EST.

The segment includes interviews with the father of modern SETI, Frank Drake, and a SETI@home volunteer, John Fluth, who has been a part of the project nearly as long as I have. We'll be interested in seeing your reaction to this piece.

Trailers are available through facebook and twitter.

Guess I'll have to wait for it to come out on youtube or something else. Barely watch tv, much less pay per view channels. Sounds interesting though. Thanks Eric.

I joined in 2003, so not as seasoned as you, but I feel like I am seasoned too!

My satellite tv subscription does not include HBO, but I'd love to see this.

For those who like me who can't see the HBO directly due our country restrictions, there is a site where you could DL the episode. http://www.scnsrc.me/category/tv/ just seach for VICE.
Normaly the episode is avaiable in a day or two after the release date.
But be aware that can be ilegal in your country (most are), check before at your own risk.

Lot's of this 'stuff' out there, but much of it is a re-hash of previous.
However, 'NOVA Wonders' (PBS) recently aired a similar program
which is freely available on line at:

Not so freely.
I live outside the United States. Why can’t I stream PBS video content from PBS.org
It's not only PBS. It's not only the United States.
And this silly squabble has been going on forever with different imagined problems and declared to being resolved very soon by many sides of the "battle" but with no agenda to do so.
I know that illegitimate streaming sites and peer to peer get the poo-poo treatment from legitimates, but I wonder if PBS and the like rely on this infrastructure to lower streaming expense and liability.
Maybe I'm just a bit bitter because I don't subscribe to HBO and can't watch "Are we alone?" on VICE :)

It's ok, that show sucked...probably the worst series of Ask Nova. America seems to dumb down science movies for the average idiot. That being said, if you got a VPN located here in the USA, you could watch it. VPN's are relatively cheap to buy. Also, you could torrent it... But like others have said, do so at your own risk.


Good Luck!

For those who are geolocked-out and can't spoof their IP adresses one way or the other, magnet links can now be found for VICE S06E08. And yes, again, be aware that this last resort option can be illegal depending on the country you live in, and when it isn't, it should be for your personal use only.

Great! We can always use more @home members! Is there any information on how the user base has grown over the years?

BOINCstats has followed this metric since 2004 here. Hopefully the VICE documentary will help improve the presently low 5,4% of active users.
