Summary
In this mind-expanding book, Paul Davies, astrobiologist and chairman of the SETI Post-Detection Taskgroup and, refocuses the search, challenging existing ideas of what form an alien intelligence might take, how it might try to communicate with us, and how we should respond if it does
Summary
Argues that erroneous searching is the cause of the lack of success of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence project over the last fifty years and recommends broader parameters that include searches for non-human-like life
