Arthur C. Clarke declared that 'the universe is full of intelligent life - it's just been too intelligent to come here'. Surendra Verma outlines the historical, fictional, speculative and emerging scientific opinions on what alien life might be like.
From Aristotle to ET via radio, religion and reincarnation, this fast-moving narrative examines history and dispels myths before focusing on the possibilities lurking in space. In a popular and easy-to-read style, Verma uses current research to speculate what life is like on other planets, how we might communicate with it, and what Earth might seem like to visitors.
