“An excellent introduction to the most awesome quest upon which science has ever embarked-the search for intelligence elsewhere in the Universe.”

-Sir Arthur C. Clarke, Author, “2001: A Space Odyssey”

We ask the age-old question: Are we alone in the Universe? Who is out there? Scientists around the world are trying to receive extraterrestrial signals. What do they hope for? What have they found? Where is the evolution of human beings headed?

“It’s not a person-to-person call, it’s not a station-to-station call, it’s a species-to-species call!”

-Philip Morrison, Physicist, MIT

“They’d probably know a lot about how the Universe works. They’ve been out there and they’ve been talking to other civilizations and there may be this whole galactic club, the ultimate Internet!”

-Jill Tarter, Project Manager, SETI Institute, California

If you ask the SETI people, those involved in the search, ‘why are they doing it?’ … the answer is to get information from the extraterrestrials – what sort of information? – information to help us survive. That’s absurd! It’s like searching for GOD – it’s a technological search for GOD!”

-Gerrit L. Verschuur, Radio Astronomer, Rhodes College

“The important thing is to find the kind of stars that seem likely and search as many as you can, for as long as you can, until you run out of patience – that’s what you’ve got to do!”

-Philip Morrison, Physicist, MIT

“I believe that the promise of SETI is far greater than its perils. It represents the highest possible form of exploration, and when we cease to explore, we will cease to be human!”

-Arthur C. Clarke, CBE, Author, Chancellor, International Space University
