Pope Francis posed a question about how people would react to extraterrestrial life in May of 2014. Brother Guy Consolmagno and Father Paul Mueller hear questions like that all the time. They’re scientists at the Vatican Observatory, the official astronomical research institute of the Catholic Church. They join George Knapp to explore a variety of questions at the crossroads of faith and reason: How do you reconcile the The Big Bang with Genesis? Was the Star of Bethlehem just a pious religious story or an actual description of astronomical events? Will the Universe come to an end? And, could you really baptize an extraterrestrial?
