Paul Davies‘ book, The Eerie Silence, is an exploration of the search for intelligent life in the universe. But what is “life,” and what is “intelligence?” And what is the likelihood of life forming on other planets? And if it did, how would we know?
Davies is a theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and astrobiologist. He is regents professor and Director of the Beyond Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science, co-Director of the Cosmology Initiative at Arizona State University.
