An award-winning professor takes readers on a guided tour of the stunning celestial discoveries of past cultures. Interweaving the astronomy, mythology, and anthropology of ancient peoples, Aveni shows how to discover the harmony between their beliefs and their study of the sky through naked-eye observations. From CHAPTER ONE: "My tales of Venus and Mars, squash and corn, are designed to entice the reader away from some of the widely held notions about the discovery and exploration of nature that are ingrained in modern culture. I want us to walk some worthwhile paths that are not so well trod."

This book describes a wide variety of speculations by many authors about the consequences for humanity of coming into contact with extraterrestrial intelligence. The assumptions underlying those speculations are examined, and some conclusions are drawn. The book emphasizes the consequences of contact rather than the search, and takes account of popular views. As necessary background, the book also includes brief summaries of the history of thinking about extraterrestrial intelligence, searches for life and for signals, contrasting paradigms of how contact might take place, and the paradox that those paradigms allegedly create.

Celeste ging bereits als junges Mädchen ins Kloster. Über hundert Briefe an den Vater sind erhalten und zeigen einen Galileo, wie wir ihn nicht kennen: voller Mut, die Wahrheiten, auf die er stieß, zu erklären. Sobel versteht es meisterlich, die Stimmen von Galileo und seiner Tochter in ihre Erzählung einzuweben. Und sie führt uns die wohl dramatischste Konfrontation von Kirche und Wissenschaft vor Augen, die es in der Geschichte gegeben hat.
