Beschreibung

In Cosmic Company, Seth Shostak and Alex Barnett ponder the possibility of aliens visiting the Earth, as well as the consequences of receiving a signal from the cosmos proving we're neither alone, nor the most intelligent life forms. They explain why scientists think life might exist on other worlds, and how we might contact it. Shostak and Barnett, experienced writers of popular astronomy, provide an accessible overveiw of the science and technology behind the search for life in the universe. Seth Shostak is a Senior Astronomer at the SETI Institute where he is involved in many of the outreach activities of the Institute, including editing the newsletter, overseeing the Web site, giving talks and writing magazine articles about SETI. He also teaches several informal education classes on astronomy and other topics in the Bay Area. Before coming to SETI, Seth did research work on galaxies using radio telescopes at observatories and universities in America and Europe. Alex Barnett is Programme Director at the National Space Centre. She is well-known in the science centre, planetarium and media worlds, particularly for public and educational programmes involving space and astronomy. She presents BBC's Final Frontier a space and astronomy programme.

Pressestimmen

'... it's likely to become a classic on the subject, and is entertaining and informative enough for anyone to read with pleasure ... the illustrations are particularly good - characterful, informative, and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny. High recommended.' Focus 'The copious, full colour illustrations are fun ... ranging from fine astronomical photographs to whimsical portraits of imaginary aliens ... This would be a good read for an enquiring 10 or 12 year old, or for an adult who wants a quick and accessible primer into the world of SETI research.' Astronomy Now '... it is clearly written and the material is accurate and jargon-free ... there are many handsome colour illustrations ... overall, I enjoyed reading this short book. It should give the general reader a basic insight into SETI, how it is done, and how important it is to do it.' The Observatory 'Cosmic Company is a concise and up-to-date account of the aims, hopes, problems and challenges that arise in the search for intelligent life beyond Earth.' Astronomy and Space 'The copious, full-colour illustrations are fun, though, ranging from fine astronomical photographs to whimsical portraits of imaginary aliens. ... This would be a good read for an enquiring 10 or 12 year old, or for an adult who wants a quick and accessible primer into the world of SETI research.' Astronomy Now
