About this book

The possibility of life on other worlds has long been the subject of endless speculation - and more and more, of scientific research. Our improving knowledge of the processes that might lead to the creation of life elsewhere is matched by the greater sophistication of our searches for some sign of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe. This book is an up-to-date review of today's scientific thinking about where and how we might find life elsewhere in the universe, presented in Stuart Clark's easily read yet authoritative style.

Contents

Test for Echo * Setting the Stage * Celestial Power Stations * Life? Don't Talk to me About Life * The Origin of Life * Sites for Life * Looking for Life in the Solar System * Searching for Inhabited Planets * ET IQ * Tuning into ET FM * The Odds of Receiving a Visit.

Media reviews
FROM THE REVIEWS: SIR PATRICK MOORE (FROM THE FOREWORD) "Is there life beyond the earth?!In this book, Stuart Clark presents a masterly survey on the whole problem!In my view it is the best of its kind that I have seen!" JOURNAL OF THE BRITISH ASTRONOMICAL ASSOCIATION "(Stuart Clark) has the rare ability to explain technically difficult concepts in simple language that can be widely understood." SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY: ASTRONAUTICS & ASTRONOMY "Clark introduces the growing field of astrobiology or bioastronomy with considerable humor and clear, concise writing. The books depth is remarkable for a work that can be understood by any educated reader with minimum study, and it contains an excellent stepwise discussion of the Second Law of Thermodynamics that takes readers slowly through this complex law over three chapters!Highly recommended for anyone interested in a quick but thorough introduction to the study of life on Earth and in the universe outside of Earth. All levels."
