Offworld is a new show by youtube-channel ‘Tested’, that explores the fun places where space and pop culture intersect. This show is right up our alley, with each episode examining science fiction story and discuss how it holds up under some scientific scrutiny.


For this very first episode, Tested talk about the 1997 cult film ‘Contact’ with special guest Dr. Jill Tarter, whose work at SETI was the inspiration for the main character of the book written by Carl Sagan, and the film.
