I remember reading Isaac Azimov's ETI the search for Extra Terrestrial Intellience 30 y [...]

    2. This book does a great job of showing how many different scientific pursuits can be tied into an interest in the question of life beyond Earth. The authors, David Koerner and Simon LeVay, explore the possibilities of both non-intelligent and intelligent life, and show how an interest in extraterrestrials can stimulate closer research and deeper understanding of the only "Life" (life system) we know of currently in the universe. The book provides good references for those interested in further re [...]

    3. Are we alone in the Universe? A discussion on the likelihood of life elsewhere and if we'll ever find it. By examining what we know about the universe and how life evolved here, the chances for either may be bleak, but that should not stop our curiosity.
