Book Summary:

This comprehensive book compilation reproduces NASA documents and Congressional testimony about the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) and cosmology. The first document is a 2014 NASA report, Archaeology, Anthropology, and Interstellar Communication, with fascinating insights into the history of the SETI concept, research efforts, and informed speculation about dealing with alien communications. Historically, most of the scientists involved with SETI have been astronomers and physicists. As SETI has grown as a science, scholars from the social sciences and humanities have become involved in the search, often focusing on how humans may react to the detection of extraterrestrial life. The present volume examines the contributions of archaeology and anthropology to contemporary SETI research, drawing on insights from scholars representing a range of disciplines. The remaining sections of this introduction provide a chapter-by-chapter overview of the book as a whole. As befits a volume published in the NASA History Series, this collection emphasizes the value of understanding the historical context of critical research questions being discussed within the SETI community today. Contents: Archaeology, Anthropology, and Interstellar Communication * Introduction * Chapter 1: SETI: The NASA Years * Chapter 2: A Political History of NASA's SETI Program * Chapter 3: The Role of Anthropology in SETI - Historical View * Chapter 4: A Tale of Two Analogues - Learning at a Distance from the Ancient Greeks and Maya and the Problem of Deciphering Extraterrestrial Radio Transmissions * Chapter 5: Beyond Linear B - The Metasemiotic Challenge of Communication with Extraterrestrial Intelligence * Chapter 6: Learning To Read - Interstellar Message Decipherment from Archaeological and Anthropological Perspectives * Chapter 7: Inferring Intelligence - Prehistoric and Extraterrestrial * Chapter 8: Anthropology at a Distance - SETI and the Production of Knowledge in the Encounter with an Extraterrestrial Other * Chapter 9: Contact Considerations - A Cross-Cultural Perspective * Chapter 10: Culture and Communication with Extraterrestrial Intelligence * Chapter 11: Speaking for Earth - Projecting Cultural Values Across Deep Space and Time * Chapter 12: The Evolution of Extraterrestrials - The Evolutionary Synthesis and Estimates of the Prevalence of Intelligence Beyond Earth * Chapter 13: Biocultural Prerequisites for the Development of Interstellar Communication * Chapter 14: Ethology, Ethnology, and Communication with Extraterrestrial Intelligence * Chapter 15: Constraints on Message Construction for Communication with Extraterrestrial Intelligence * U.S. House of Representatives, Committee on Science, Space, and Technology Hearings on Astrobiology and SETI * NASA Primer on Cosmology: The Study of the Universe The United States pioneered the field of astrobiology, and currently leads the world in astrobiology research. Astrobiology is multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary and attracts physicists, organic chemists, biologists, geologists and astronomers, among others from around the world to the United States to conduct their research. While conducting research, individual scientists must verse themselves in a variety of scientific disciplines, while also collaborating with colleagues across scientific fields. Astrobiologists study microbial life in underwater lakes beneath Antarctica, living organisms that can thrive in extreme temperatures at the edge of volcanic fissures on the bottom of the ocean and bacteria that live in deserts in order to better understand the varied conditions in which life might exist in the diverse environments on planetary bodies in our Solar System and beyond.

Book Summary:

Some might think that the 27 thousand tons of material launched by earthlings into outer space is nothing more than floating piles of debris. However, when looking at these artifacts through the eyes of historians and anthropologists, instead of celestial pollution, they are seen as links to human history and heritage. Space: The New Frontier for Archeologists Handbook of Space Engineering, Archaeology and Heritage, published this month by CRC Press Taylor and Francis Group, brings together 43 anthropologists, historians, physicists, and engineers, a scientific team as culturally diverse as the crew of any science fiction cruiser. They offer a range of novel historical and technological perspectives on humankind’s experience in space. This ambitious work presents an informative, thought-provoking, and educational text that discusses the evolution of space engineering, spacecraft reliability and forensics, field techniques, and mission planning, as well as space programs for the future. The book is edited by a pair of scientists from different sides of the campus: Ann Garrison Darrin, aerospace engineer and NASA veteran and Beth Laura O’Leary, anthropologist and member of the World Archaeological Congress Space Heritage Task Force. The handbook delves into the evolution of space archaeology and heritage, including the emerging fields of Archaeoastronomy, Ethnoastronomy, and Cultural Astronomy. It also covers space basics and the history of the space age from Sputnik to modern day satellites. It discusses the cultural landscape of space, including orbital artifacts in space, as well as objects left on planetary surfaces and includes a look at the culture of Apollo as a catalog of manned exploration of the moon. It also considers the application of forensic investigation to the solving of cold case mysteries including failed Mars mission landing sites and lost spacecraft, and even investigates the archaeology of the putative Roswell UFO crash site and appraises material culture in science fiction.

Book Summary:

Archaeology, Anthropology, and Interstellar Communication contains 15 essays that explore the relationships between the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) and the scholarly disciplines of archaeology and anthropology. Many of the essays are updated versions of papers originally presented in symposia at the 2004, 2005, and 2006 annual conventions of the American Anthropological Association. Contributors include eminent archaeologists and anthropologists as well as astrobiologists, historians, psychologists, a philosopher and cognitive ethologist, a literary theorist, a computer scientist, and others whose work synthesizes research from both the humanities and the natural sciences. Editor Douglas A. Vakoch, who is Director of Interstellar Message Composition at the SETI Institute and a Professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies, has organized the essays into four sections: ?Historical Perspectives on SETI,? ?Archaeological Analogues,? ?Anthropology, Culture, and Communication,? and ?The Evolution and Embodiment of Extraterrestrials.? Vakoch has also provided an introduction, titled ?Reconstructing Distant Civilizations and Encountering Alien Cultures,? and an epilogue. This collection offers a comprehensive and fascinating approach to the complex subject of communication between modern humans and a remote ?other.? It describes ways in which our understanding of ancient civilizations and terrestrial non-humans may inform any future exchange with extraterrestrial intelligences?beings far distant from us not just in space and time but perhaps even in the most fundamental aspects of physical experience and intellectual perception. It also demonstrates how examining Earthly cultures of the past can help us to imagine and prepare for the interstellar encounters that may lie ahead.

Book Summary:

A pioneering space archaeologist explores artifacts left behind in space and on Earth, from moon dust to Elon Musk's red sports car. Alice Gorman is a space archaeologist: she examines the artifacts of human encounters with space. These objects, left behind on Earth and in space, can be massive (dead satellites in eternal orbit) or tiny (discarded zip ties around a defunct space antenna). They can be bold (an American flag on the moon) or hopeful (messages from Earth sent into deep space). They raise interesting questions: Why did Elon Musk feel compelled to send a red Tesla into space? What accounts for the multiple rocket-themed playgrounds constructed after the Russians launched Sputnik? Gorman—affectionately known as “Dr Space Junk” —takes readers on a journey through the solar system and beyond, deploying space artifacts, historical explorations, and even the occasional cocktail recipe in search of the ways that we make space meaningful. Engaging and erudite, Gorman recounts her background as a (nonspace) archaeologist and how she became interested in space artifacts. She shows us her own piece of space junk: a fragment of the fuel tank insulation from Skylab, the NASA spacecraft that crash-landed in Western Australia in 1979. She explains that the conventional view of the space race as “the triumph of the white, male American astronaut” seems inadequate; what really interests her, she says, is how everyday people engage with space. To an archaeologist, objects from the past are significant because they remind us of what we might want to hold on to in the future.

Book Summary:

A visual tour of the evidence for ancient astronauts in Mesoamerica • Includes more than 200 full-color photographs from the author’s personal archives • Details the astronaut technology--helmets, tanks, hoses, keyboards, rockets--clearly illustrated in stone carvings and statues from Mesoamerican sites such as Palenque, Chichén Itzá, and Teotihuacán in Mexico and Tikal in Guatemala • Explores the similarities of Maya pyramids with those at Kanchipuram in South India Sharing more than 200 never-before-published full-color photographs from his personal archives, bestselling author Erich von Däniken provides clear evidence of ancient alien contact and technology among the archaeological sites of the Maya as well as other ancient cultures, such as the Aztecs and the Hindus. He reveals how the “gods” immortalized in Maya sculptures, carved reliefs, and myth were not supernatural beings but technologically advanced visitors, astronauts who gifted the Maya with their sophisticated understanding of calendar time and cosmology. He explains how, with no explanation for their technologies and origins, the Maya interpreted the visitors as divine and, thus, the “gods” were born. Examining stone carvings and statues from many Mesoamerican sites such as Palenque, Chichén Itzá, and Teotihuacán in Mexico and Tikal in Guatemala, von Däniken reveals the astronaut technology--helmets, tanks, hoses, keyboards, rockets--clearly illustrated in these ancient depictions of the gods. He explores the similarities of Plato’s writings with the Chilam Balam books of Mexico and compares “ancient alien” features in myths around the world, paralleling how mercury is mentioned as a fuel ingredient of flying machines in ancient India with the discovery of mercury at Copán, Palenque, and Teotihuacán as well as in the grave of a Chinese emperor and two Egyptian graves on Nabta Playa. Illustrating the similarities of Mayan step pyramids with those of Kanchipuram in South India, the author explains how Mayan pyramids are crowned with a small temple, residence, or landing field of the gods, while the pyramids of South India are topped with a Vimana, a “godly” flying vehicle. Offering visual proof of the ancient world’s contact with advanced alien visitors they recorded as gods and teachers, von Däniken also raises the question of the “heavenly” origins of royal families and dynasties in Mesoamerica, Egypt, and beyond, revealing how the Mayan kings of Palenque and the pharaohs of Egypt may be descendants of the “gods.”

Book Summary:

Childress takes us around the world and back in his trippy finale to the Lost Cities series. He is off on an adventure in search of the apocalypse and end times. He has flipped out, and more. Childress hits the road from the fortress of Megiddo, the legendary fortress in northern Israel where Armageddon is prophesised to start. Hitchhiking around the world, Childress takes us from one adventure to another, to ancient cities in the deserts and the legends of worlds before our own. Childress muses on the rising and falling of civilisations and the forces that have shaped mankind over the millennia, including wars, invasions and cataclysms. He discusses the ancient wars of the past, including evidence for ancient atomic wars, and relates the dim past with the present and dim future. With humour, philosophical insight, and wonder at the amazing world around us, Childress shows us the many traces of advanced civilisation in the past, and how we should look at them differently than modern scientists currently do.

Book Summary:

An intriguing overview of the ways in which science could find evidence for extraterrestrial life Are we alone in the universe, or is life a universal phenomenon? For fifty years, astronomers in SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) have scanned the universe for intelligent signals, but with no success. In this intriguing book, Edward Ashpole explains the probable reasons for this and discusses other avenues of investigation more in line with the nature of science and technology. The author examines the problems inherent in scanning the universe for radio or optical signals from an alien intelligence. These include the difficulty of trying to communicate with another species possessing a completely unknown form of technology and the vast distances that alien communications would have to travel to reach us. This leads Ashpole to other ways of finding evidence for extraterrestrial life, given that advanced civilizations would probably use artificial intelligence for interstellar travel. Our scientists now know how to detect the presence of life on a planet by observing its spectral lines, so more advanced alien researchers would have had ample time (about two billion years) to investigate these “signatures of life” coming from Earth. Hence, the author argues, alien space probes could exist within our own solar system; there might be evidence on the erosion-free Moon or on another moon or planet. In fact, a few scientists have scanned NASA's best photography, looking for evidence of such “alien archaeology.” In a final chapter, the author urges an open-minded attitude on the part of scientists to all credible sources of information, along with the use of the scientific method to test various hypotheses and weed out the fantasy factor, which so often interferes with serious attempts to find hard evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence. Informative and fascinating, Signatures of Life delves into a topic that often provokes wild speculation in a thought-provoking yet scientifically responsible way.
