Who We Are: Ben Finney

Dr. Ben Finney, an anthropology professor at the University of Hawaii, actively participates in both the international SETI Permanent Study Group and the annual CONTACT conference. In the early 1970s he founded the Polynesian Voyaging Society to revive Polynesian voyaging for research and cultural purposes. The Society's first voyaging canoe has now sailed over 100,000 nautical miles. This provided an excellent basis for thinking about human prospects in space. As a result he co-edited Interstellar Migration and the Human Experience, and still frequently writes and speaks about this topic. He chairs the Space and Society department at the International Space University's peripatetic summer sessions.
