Are we alone? An entire field of study attemps to answer this question. Paul Murdin is an astronomer dedicated to this branch of science called astrobiology. How do we look for life? Why do we care? What do we consider life? What will happen if we find life somewhere else other than Earth? All of these questions are explored in systematic detail. There are 36 illustrations in the center of the book that give an impressive look at the possibilities. One in particular is a printout of a high intensity radio transmission that came from space back in the 1970s. The scientific evidence contained in this book is revealed in clear language that is perfect for the lay-reader.
APPEAL: There are no conspiracies in this book, only hard scientific evidence of a subject that never fails to intrigue.
