Description: What are the chances of little green men from Mars visiting your neighbourhood? Under the editorship of theoretical physicist Professor Jim Al-Khalili, scientists and experts in their fields explore the probability and improbability of such an event. From the possible nature of alien consciousness and the likelihood of machines being our first visitors, to current and future SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) projects, the subject matter is wide-ranging but appropriately presented for the lay person.

A thought-provoking and inspiring book that boldly goes where no-one has gone before. [Small font]
