Could We Decode Alien Physics?

Season 8 Episode 20 | 14m 25s | Video has closed captioning.

How hard can it really be to decode alien physics and engineering? It’s gotta map to our own physics - I mean, we live in the same universe. We start by noticing that the alien technology seems to use good ol’ fashioned electronics, even if it is insanely complex. We know this because the particle carried by the alien circuitry looks like the electron.
