Stephen Hawking searches for aliens, and Elon Musk explains the SpaceX explosion

We’ve been thrilled to have longtime area and science reporter Alan Boyle masking two huge tales for GeekWire at present: Stephen Hawking’s announcement of a $100 million initiative to seek out alien life, and Elon Musk’s news conference about a preliminary discovering in the current SpaceX Falcon 9 explosion.

Earlier than leaving the GeekWire workplaces this afternoon, Alan sat down and talked with us about each tales, in addition to the newest information about Pluto — a topic he tracks intently as the creator of “The Case for Pluto: How A Little Planet Made A Big Difference.”

Hearken to our dialog with Alan about all of these subjects beneath.
