Strange New Worlds
The Search for Alien Planets and Life Beyond Our Solar SystemBook - 2011
The author is a professor and serves as Canada Research Chair in observational astrophysics at the University of Toronto. Since 1995, astronomers have found hundreds of planets around other stars. Is our solar system, with planets in circular orbits and at least one world teeming with life, the exception or the norm? If life exists elsewhere, what are the ramifications for religion, philosophy, art and other areas of human endeavour?
