In this stunningly illustrated field guide, popular science writer Adam Hart-Davis will bring us the very latest findings that are revolutionising our view of the Cosmos. He will travel to locations around the world to meet scientists who are attempting to unravel some attempting to unravel some of the great unaswered questions in cosmology, such as the likelyhood of discovering extraterrestrial life. At the Allen Telescope Array in California, Adam will encounter the sharp end of this search: the Array is currently under construction and. when complete, will comprise 350 six-metre dishes focused permanently on detecting intelligent life in the Universe. High in mountains of Tenerife Adam will reveal the latest findings in the hunt for planets outside our Solar System. And in Cologne, he will meet scientists at the European Space Agency whose ambition is to send the first humans to Mars. This is no longer in the realm of science-fiction: in all probability the first astronauts to Mars have already been born.
