The Aliens Are Coming!: The Extraordinary Science Behind Our Search for Life in the Universe
When it comes to defining what intelligence is, we find ourselves thrown against the wall, as helpless as those in a police line-up. And then we wonder if someone will pick us out and accuse us of the crime. Anyone who’s ever seen that creepy Sigourney Weaver movie, Alien, would be freaked out at the prospect of alien intelligence invading our human world. Yet, we tend to wonder if it’s out there. Ben Miller has accepted the challenge to realize the extraordinary science behind our search for life in the universe in his amazing new book, The Aliens Are Coming!
This illuminating look into the prospect of discovering extra-terrestrial life stimulates our brains like no other. Although it reads like a work of fiction, the truths it uncovers put us in a reflexive spell.
Being an actor and comedian, Ben Miller brings humor and energy to his work as a quantum physicist. The topics about which he writes vary as widely as his personal interests. He wrestles with everything from the primordial soup to discovering extra-terrestrial life; and don’t forget his feelings about the Drake Equation. It’s a fun read for the average audience, placing the reader in a reflective mood.
