Summary
The premise that alien life exists has had a grip on writers, artists, thinkers, and scientists since possibly the earliest days of civilization. This awesome text explores many of the critical parts of astrobiology from theories about exoplanets and the formation of solar systems to places like the Lowell Observatory and Roswell and people like H. G. Wells and Carl Sagan. Astrobiology, or the search for aliens, has never been so accessible as in this text. With full-color artwork and gripping, accessible main text, sidebars, and fact boxes, readers enjoy indulging in alien theories all the while learning science and history
