    Making Contact PDF ó ´ MOBI garden homeco making pdf, contact epub, Making Contact ePUBI received a free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewFour stars is a little generous for this competent but somewhat clumsy biography but I prefer to round up the stars for a book that tries to give an honest and still exciting account of a woman in science of this caliber Tarter is a fascinating figure not just in her own right but also as a representative of a certain era of American academic scientists and of women making their way up through a heavily male dominated field The kind of challenges Tarter faced in her early career are thankfully almost unimaginable now but some of the challenges that she and her female colleagues still face are unfortunately not s

    Making Contact PDF ó ´ MOBI garden homeco making pdf, contact epub, Making Contact ePUBHere's an excerpt from my book review in Nature Here's the full review As a child in the 1950s Jill Tarter would gaze at the stars and wonder “Are we alone?” That monumental question has driven the astronomer's lifelong quest to find alien life in the Milky WayIn Making Contact science writer Sarah Scoles interweaves a profile of Tarter with the tumultuous decades long history of the SETI Institute in Mountain View California where Tarter holds the Bernard M Oliver chair Scoles argues that without Tarter telescopes and observing programmes focused on SETI the search for extraterrestrial intelligence such as the Allen Telescope Array and Breakthrough Listen might not be around today Yet hers may be a quixotic mission having failed to receive a single definitive signal so farThe book's title references Carl Sagan's best selling 1985 novel C

    Making Contact PDF ó ´ MOBI garden homeco making pdf, contact epub, Making Contact ePUB This is just a shortened review I'll be posting a QA with the author on Spacecom later this monthI found this to be an excellent biography of Jill Tarter If you don't know anything about space SETI or astrobiology then here's the quick intro Tarter is the real life person that the Jodie Foster character was based on in Carl Sagan's book and movie Contact If you don't know who Sagan is I have no words to help youScoles takes the time to seriously dig into Tarter's life and history Along the way she charts the path of SETI the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence This isn't a comprehensive history of SETI as she

    Making Contact PDF ó ´ MOBI garden homeco making pdf, contact epub, Making Contact ePUBThank you to Netgalley for allowing me to read this book I'm an astronomy teacher and I have shown the movie Contact to my students in the past As such I really loved learning about Jill Tarter and SETI in general I absolutely envision sharing information about the real Jill Tarter along with our other SETI related discussions

    Making Contact PDF ó ´ MOBI garden homeco making pdf, contact epub, Making Contact ePUBI'm genuinely interested in the subject matter but this book is terminally dull dreadfully organized it's a biography that skips around in time frequently and often with little warning or signalling and riddled with editorial errors including some outright ungrammatical sentences Also the author cannot put together a reasonable metaphor to save her life Blech

    Making Contact PDF ó ´ MOBI garden homeco making pdf, contact epub, Making Contact ePUBI picked this up after hearing Tarter speak to the local astronomy club Her galactic size worldview and self assuredness intrigued me and I wanted to know The book is roughly equal parts biography and history of SETI well written though it could have used one high level editorial pass to smooth out repetition and some awkward sentence

    Making Contact PDF ó ´ MOBI garden homeco making pdf, contact epub, Making Contact ePUBMaking Contact is a good biography of an important scientist in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence SETI Like a lot of biographies the narration skips around in time a bit and that can make the timeline of events a bit confusing There are a a couple of errors that I caught an incorrect explanation for why we have leap days the Pioneer probes never photographed Neptune but all of this doesn't get in the way of the fact that Jill Tarter has been an essential pioneer in the SETI field and an important and unfortunately all too rare role model for women astronomers Making Contact does a good job of highlighting the importance of her work and life as a SETI pioneer
