Confessions of an alien hunter a scientist's search for extraterrestrial intelligence by G. Seth Shostak ( Recording )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the first Martian "canals" were charted in 1877, space aliens have captivated skygazers, night travelers, and television watchers worldwide. Polls show that nearly half of all Americans believe in extraterrestrials, and many are convinced they've visited Earth. A fair number of scientists also suspect that aliens exist, and for decades they've been seriously searching -- using powerful antennas and computers to scan for radio waves coming from other star systems. This engaging memoir reveals the true story of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), and discloses what we may very soon discover. Chronicling the program's history, SETI senior astronomer Seth Shostak assures us that if there is sentient life in the universe, we are within decades of picking up its signal. Methodically busting urban legends about alien crash landings, crop circles, and the like, Shostak pits scientific truth against speculation and delivers important news on the state of our knowledge

The wrong-way comet and other mysteries of our solar system : essays by Barry Evans ( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 75 essays, Evans supplies fascinating facts and raises questions about the mysteries of astronomy. Why is the night sky dark? How likely is it that meteors killed the dinosaurs? Since Halley's Comet orbits the wrong way around the sun, did it originate outside our solar system? He also encourages the reader to become involved in our cosmic backyard, pointing out that a telescope isn't necessary for most viewing - binoculars are adequate for most sights and are actually better for seeing meteors and some nebulae. Aimed at the general science reader, this book tackles subjects ranging from current dark matter theories and the background of astronomy, to the human interest story of Clyde Tombaugh, the man who discovered Pluto. Barry Evans is a well-known lecturer, and his weekly column on astronomy Star Watch is syndicated in more than 35 newspapers in the USA. He is s member of the Astronomical Society for the Pacific and the Peninsula Astronomical Society

Murmurs of Earth : the Voyager interstellar record by Carl Sagan ( Book )
2 editions published between 1992 and 2003 in Polish and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Preface: On August 20th and September 5th, 1977, two extraordinary spacecraft called Voyager were launched to the stars. After what promises to be a detailed and thoroughly dramatic exploration of the outer solar system from Jupiter to Uranus between 1979 and 1986, these space vehicles will slowly leave the solar systems - emissaries of the Earth to the realm of the stars. Affixed to each Voyager craft is a gold-coated copper phonograph record as a message to possible extra-terrestrial civilizations that might encounter the spacecraft in some distant space and time. Each record contains 118 photographs of our planet, ourselves and our civilization; almost 90 minutes of the world's greatest music; and evolutionary audio essay on "The Sounds of Earth"; and greetings in almost sixty human languages (and one whale language), including salutations from the President of the United States and the Secretary General of the United Nations. This book is an account, written by those chiefly responsible for the contents of the Voyager Record, of why we did it, how we selected the repertoire, and precisely what the record contains
