Science Voice: Ignoring the messenger | Opinion

A man comes in shouting and waving his arms telling you that a massive boulder is rolling down the hill on a direct collision course with your house. Utter destruction, he says, is mere seconds away. 

But you have heard about this guy. You’ve heard he is chronic liar and regularly pulls off pranks against his neighbors.

Saving Proxima—Travis S. Taylor, Les Johnson (Baen)

The year is 2072. At the lunar farside radio observatory, an old-school radio broadcast is detected, similar to those broadcast on Earth in the 1940s, but in an unknown language, coming from an impossible source, and originating at an equally impossible location—Proxima Centauri. While the nations of Earth debate making first contact, they learn that the Proximans are facing an extinction-level disaster, forcing a decision: will Earth send a ship on a multiyear trip to provide aid? Interstellar travel is not easy, and by traveling at the speeds required to arrive before disaster strikes at
