Format: Paperback
Highlights the most recent developments in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), and advocates a diverse range of approaches to make SETI increasingly more powerful and effective in the years to come.

In April 2010, fifty years to the month after the first experiment in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), scholars from a range of disciplines--including astronomy, mathematics, anthropology, history, and cognitive science--gathered at NASA's biennial Astrobiology Science Conference (AbSciCon) for a series of sessions on the search for intelligent life. This book highlights the most recent developments in SETI discussed at that conference, emphasizing the ways that SETI has grown since its inception. The volume covers three broad themes: First, leading researchers examine the latest developments in observational SETI programs, as well as innovative proposals for new search strategies and novel approaches to signal processing. Second, both proponents and opponents of "Active SETI" debate whether humankind should be transmitting intentional signals to other possible civilizations, rather than only listening. Third, constructive proposals for interstellar messages are juxtaposed with critiques that ask whether any meaningful exchange is possible with an independently evolved civilization, given the constraints of contact at interstellar distances, where a round-trip exchange could take centuries or millennia.

As we reflect on a half-century of SETI research, we are reminded of the expansion of search programs made possible by technological and conceptual advances.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Harold A. Geller on January 28, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an edited volume written by some of the conference attendees at the 2010 AbSciCon. Like all edited volumes the writing style varies by author. Some are easier reads than others. I found comments online about the more technical portions (I think that comment was to warn others that there are equations present, even a few with derivatives and integrals - ironic comments from a reviewer as there is a chapter on the universality of mathematics as a language to communicate with other civilizations, perhaps just not our own), but that certainly doesn't apply to all chapters. In my opinion this volume would be excellent supplemental reading material for a course on astrobiology, especially highlighting the multidisciplinary nature of the field exemplified by the coverage of the contributed chapters. My largest complaints would be a blatant book promotion by one of the contributors and a mis-statement of fact about the nature of the Sun in one of the non-science contributions.
