Its been nearly four decades since Carl Sagan first addressed the general public from a scientists perspective, confronting the possibility of extraterrestrial life. Weve learned a lot in those years, and planetary scientist David Grinspoon is well prepared to explore this field with a new generation of readers. In Lonely Planets, Grinspoon investigates the big questions: How widespread are life and intelligence in the cosmos? Is life on Earth an accident or in some sense the purpose of this universe? And how can we, working from the Earth-centric definition of life, even begin to think about the varieties of lifeforms on other planets?--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
