From ‘Star Trek’ to ‘Arrival’: How pop culture helps us imagine extraterrestrial life

View descriptionShare

The Nose is off this week. In its place, a look at how we imagine extraterrestrial life.

This hour: how we imagine extraterrestrial life and how those visions are shaped by our TV and movies and more.
