Beyond UFOs: The Search for Extraterrestrial Life and Its Astonishing Implications for Our Future

By Jeffrey Bennett | Go to book overview

TO LEARN MORE
In a short book like this one, I’ve necessarily had to leave out many details that lie behind the topics discussed. I hope that some readers will be inspired to learn more, as well as to keep abreast of new developments in the fast-moving field of astrobiology. Toward that end, here are a few recommendations:
You can find a vast amount of information on the Web, along with updates on new discoveries. A great place to start is the web site for the NASA Astrobiology Institute (nai.nasa.gov); after that, a search on “astrobiology” will take you to many other Web resources.
If you would like more detail about the particular topics discussed in this book, you’ll find them in my textbook Life in the Universe (currently in its third edition), co-authored by Seth Shostak and published by Addison Wesley.
If you are a student or live in a college town, look for an introductory course in astrobiology or life in the universe; many institutions now offer such courses. (And if you teach at an institution that would like to start such a course, feel free to contact me and I’ll help as much as I can.)
Finally, while I won’t make any promises, I plan to do my best to post updates and additional resources on the web site for this book: www.BeyondUFOs.com
Please also visit my personal web site: www.JeffreyBennett.com
Or Princeton University Press’s web site for this book: press.princeton .edu/titles/8594.html
