Paul Davies

-  

If aliens ever contact us, it will be perhaps the single most significant event in human history. And Paul Davies will be responsible for saying something back.

Here, he looks at exciting new ways to make contact with extra-terrestrial life. He considers what form advanced alien intelligence is likely to take if it exists.
