Aliens Land at Manchester Airport
This is a story about an alien who stumbles on planet Earth and gets lost at Manchester Airport. Then there is a twist at the end. It has an optional extra chapter—“The Science Behind the Story”. This asks questions like, Could intelligent life forms evolve on planets other than our own? Could they travel through time? Do the discoveries of science mean that there can’t possibly be a God? This book can be enjoyed at two levels: as a children’s story and as a thoughtful but light-hearted contribution to the debate around science, atheism, and faith. We hope you enjoy them both.
