Mimi Lavalle tells us that Dr. Boyajian and Tabby's Star will be featured in the new NOVA episode "Are We Alone?". The airdates on broadcast 27.1 are...
*9 May, 8pm CDT
*10 May, 1am CDT and 1pm CDT
*11 May, 3am CDT
Some scientists are saying what many have believed for some time--the chances of discovering life in a relatively nearby system are high.

A little over an hour from now (7pm), LSU graduate student Tyler Ellis will present an update on Tabby's Star at the monthly meeting of the Baton Rouge Astronomical Society. The meeting is open to the public; one need not be a member.

Of course, one of the major speculations was that there is some sort of articificial construction around the star. The SETI Institute is checking on that...
