Product Description


From the reviews: “Ross begins by reviewing the vast distances involved in a search, such as the density of stars in space and how long it takes light to travel to Earth. … Copious illustrations are very helpful in facilitating an understanding of many of the technical details. Ross has produced a well-organized … book that covers the basics of SETI very well. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates and general readers.” (M.-K. Hemenway, Choice, Vol. 47 (10), June, 2010)

5.0 out of 5 stars A hopeless cause? 30 April 2014
By Philip S. Taylor - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a good overview dealing with the trials and tribulations of SETI. Technical issues are kept to a minimum. The Physics are descriptive and not analytical. The views given are thought provoking and will encourage further reading to those who are really into this subject. There is a lot of information in 163 pages of text. A good read.
