Publisher's Summary

The story of man's search for life elsewhere in the universe is told in this magnificent ground-breaking audio, by one of the world's most respected science communicators, Professor Timothy Ferris. In this audio, Ferris combines new discoveries about the origins of life as we know it on Earth with recent revelations about the sun's planets and their moons, in order to seek out possible abodes for life in our solar system and beyond. This audio explains why many scientists are convinced that life is abundant throughout the universe, and considers how one day radio telescopes may be used to connect us to an intergalactic Internet and link us to alien civilizations in the far reaches of the universe. "Part 1: Are We Alone?" addresses the origins of life on Earth and traces the search for life in other worlds. "Part 2: Is Anybody Listening?" examines the strategies being used to communicate with fellow travelers among the stars.
