padPlanetary Dreams The Quest to Discover Life Beyond Earth

by Robert Shapiro

A thoroughgoing discussion of our sporadic quest to locate evidence of extraterrestrial life leads into Shapiro's suggestions of the best places to look. He proposes ways that Earthly life could be linked with possible life forms in the ice-covered oceans of Jupiter's airless moons or the underground hot springs of Mars. He also updates readers on NASA's life-seeking missions. Originally published in hardcover in 1999.
