In a universe that stretches across billions of light years, can Earth really be the only home of intelligent life? This book avoids the sensationalism often attached to discussions about UFOs and aliens. Instead, science is coupled with historical information and firsthand sightings to teach students about responsible research, evaluation of sources, and critical thinking, even when confronted with mysterious topics.
