Sunday Assembly: Communty Sing & Meetup | Berkeley

SA_FB_Cover_Wonder_Audience1
Sunday Assembly
 is a non-religious congregation that celebrates life. They’ve got the best parts of a church – community, singing, and acts of service – without any of the religious dogma.

They typically meet on the third Sunday of the month to sing, think, listen, laugh, and build community together. They feature speakers from the local science and humanities communities, and they typically offer a way to donate to a local organization.

The Sunday Assembly is a godless congregation started in 2012 by two comedians and performers in England. It is a growing global network of people with the motto to “Live Better. Help Often. Wonder More.”

“A Cosmic Perspective: Searching for Aliens, Finding Ourselves” with speaker and SETI Institute researcher Jill Tarter

We want to know whether there is life beyond the Earth and whether any of it is intelligent. This will be the century in which we will find some answers to this question, as there are many paths we will investigate. As we look up and look out, we see ourselves from a cosmic perspective: a perspective that is fundamental to finding a way to sustain life on Earth for the long future.

Jill Tarter holds the Bernard M. Oliver Chair for SETI Research at the SETI Institute in Mountain View, California. She served as Project Scientist for NASA’s SETI program, the High Resolution Microwave Survey, and has conducted numerous observational programs at radio observatories worldwide. She was named one of the Time 100 in 2004, received a TED prize in 2009, won multiple awards for communicating science to the public, and has been honored as a woman in technology. She has served in a leadership role to design and build the Allen Telescope Array and to secure private funding to continue the exploratory science of SETI. Many people are familiar with her work as portrayed by Jodie Foster in the movie Contact.
