About Steve Tupper

Stephen Force is the superhero alter ego of mild-mannered tech and aviation lawyer, commercial pilot (glider, with private privileges in ASEL, ASES, AMEL, IA, and DC-3 (SIC) type-rated), and Civil Air Patrol lieutenant colonel Steve Tupper. Steve writes, records, and brings you the inside story about everything that really matters in aviation. He's flown with the USAF Thunderbirds, he's and airshow performer and air boss, and he's one of only five pilots ever to earn a FAST card in the glider category. Follow Steve's ongoing quest to do all that is cool in aviation at or on Twitter as @StephenForce.

    Interesting interview but I’m surprised there was no mention of SETI@Home:

    Figured that would have been mentioned as another way to get the public involved in SETI.

    Thermal noise and free space path loss are the enemies of making ET contact. The weaker the signal the longer your search time becomes. One of these days I’m going to write a paper on this for the SETI community.
