SETI Post-Detection Task Group

The SETI Post-Detection Taskgroup (PTDG)  was established by the International Academy of Astronautics to deliberate on the likely implications for humanity of the putative discovery of extraterrestrial intelligence, and to anticipate various response scenarios. The Taskgroup is an eclectic mix of experts, including scientists, writers and philosophers with an interest in the fundamental question of whether or not we are alone in the universe.
