Last week, Gerald Harp of the SETI Institute - a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to the search for extraterrestrial intelligence - held a live chat with The Post's online readers. Harp, trained as a physicist, began by describing his job: "The pay is not so good and I get a lot of UFO jokes. . . . If I wasn't this is the sentence I added ...confident that there was life out there, then I would not be doing SETI." Following are excerpts adapted from the discussion.

I'm sure there are scientists who will disagree with the statement that 'warp speed has no place in modern physics'.  To read the rest of the article, click here.

"It's a stupid article. Harp is self-serving because if there was warp drive his whole project is a waste of money. Of course he will debunk UFOs because they are direct evidence of warp drive." -- Jack Sarfatti
