Description: Parker propels us into the thrilling realm of space exploration, assessing our chances of finding extraterrestrials, as he describes the science behind our efforts to reach the final frontier. Today's cutting-edge radio telescopes scan the cosmos for any signal that may indicate alien contact. Already we may have found microbes in meteorites from Mars. Three of Jupiter's moons are now known to contain ice and liquid water. Having discovered planets outside our solar system, astronomers believe that perhaps other "suns" exist capable of supporting planets that harbor alien life forms. Parker stresses that disaster surely awaits as Earth's ever-growing population depletes our planer's natural resources. He explains the plans to mine treasures in space, generate power on distant bodies, and establish thriving space communities.

We can control our alien searches in space, but what if they find us first? Have we already been visited? How do we account for eye-witness reports of bizarre glowing lights, scorched patterns on crop fields, and alleged abductions? Buckle your seatbelt as our eloquent guide navigates us through the magnificent discoveries of yesterday and today in search of undiscovered worlds and extraterrestrials of tomorrow.
