FIVE BILLION YEARS OF SOLITUDE The Search for Life Among the Stars

by | Read by Lee Billings

Contemporary Culture • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Lee Billings laments the funding woes of the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) project: No one's looking for life on other planets anymore. Still, he has great passion for the subject. The effects of space journeys on humans, the Hubble space telescope, and commercial exploration are among the topics he looks into. He narrates his own writing with a sense of wonder, making the search for life something that's human, not a mess of scientific calculations. He paints poetic mental pictures of the hunt for unknown planets and possible life elsewhere in the universe, making it interesting and easy to follow. Listeners with an interest in space exploration will want to hear Billings's work. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2014]
