Talk: The Aliens are Coming!

If aliens would land on Earth, whose job would it be to liaise with them? If we received their signal, how would we know it's them? And how would they look like? Ben Miller is a comedian and actor, but also an author and scientist. In his book he uses the rather fantastical possibility of aliens visiting us to discuss real-world science, covering fascinating aspects of language, biology, evolution, or astronomy.
