Readers of grand speculations by the likes of Freeman Dyson and Stanislaw Lem will find nothing in Interstellar to make them blink . . . Loeb, who has spent a career writing about black holes, dark matter and the deep time of the universe, argues that unless we go looking for extraterrestrials, we're never going to find them. His dating metaphor grew on me: are we to be cosmic wallflowers, standing around on the off-chance that some stranger comes along? Or are we going to go looking for things we'll never spot without a bit of effort?
