Humans have long wondered whether they are alone in the universe or whether life exists on other planets. Contributors to this intriguing anthology explore whether there is life beyond Earth, the role of science in hunting for extraterrestrial life, the mystery of UFOs, and the potential impact of contact with otherworldly life forms.
"This thoughtful, lucidly written work presents an evenhanded discussion of five major issues. The best organized introduction for the student needing report or debate material. The abundantly footnoted text quotes many primary sources and draws upon scientific examples to illuminate the questions. Informative...black-and-white photographs accompany the text. The appended list of organizations and the generally current list of books for further reading are both annotated."
