NASA Releases Free E-Book On Decoding Extraterrestrial Messages

NASA has put out a free, fascinating e-book exploring the possibility of human/extraterrestrial communication. The 300-page book, which has chapters written by more than a dozen different scholars, looks to archaeology and anthropology for clues to decoding extraterrestrial messages, should they ever arrive. In his introduction to the volume, editor Douglas A. Vakoch explains, “Like archaeologists who reconstruct temporally distant civilizations from fragmentary evidence, SETI [Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence] researchers will be expected to reconstruct distant civilizations separated from us by vast expanses of space as well as time. And like anthropologists, who attempt to understand other cultures despite differences in language and social customs, as we attempt to decode and interpret extraterrestrial messages, we will be required to comprehend the mindset of a species that is radically Other.”

Addressing a field that has been dominated by astronomers, physicists, engineers, and computer scientists, the contributors to this collection raise questions that may have been overlooked by physical scientists about the ease of establishing meaningful communication with an extraterrestrial intelligence. These scholars are grappling with some of the enormous challenges that will face humanity if an information-rich signal emanating from another world is detected. By drawing on issues at the core of contemporary archaeology and anthropology, we can be much better prepared for contact with an extraterrestrial civilization, should that day ever come.

  1. I haven’t seen concrete evidence but have witness such craft at midnight hovering in the air with beaming yellowish burning light, first i thought an helicopter was burning on air but after slowly stopped moving and hovered it beams white bright light and vanished. I had to google aircraft that can do such only to discover topics on UFO.somebody must have first hand information on such aircraft.

  2. So I’ve downloaded the ebook for a giggle later…they would have had to intercept a lot of messages to come up with a code breaker…it’s like a movie…not to mention that there are probably multiple other races living on or near this plain…it’s all too hilarious NASA comes up with some great stories…larger than life so it can never fully be perceived or understood … 🙂

  3. i don’t understand this …we don’t even understand each other … we don’t give a flying f@uck abut other nations but we will learn to communicate with some kind of extraterestrials ? what would the first thing to say to them ? “hi i hate my race ! because i am 1 like them by the way how are you ?” (first learn to love your kind help your kind !) (sory for my poor english)

  4. I believe I can communicate with higher intelligence if given the opportunity to enhance my abilities with the right kind of people or influence..

    This book reveals so many secrets of the different alien races… find out what they want you to know and what they don’t want you to find out!

  6. Hmmmm, form of desensitization .. they’ve been doing it for years. To the nay sayers wake up, they appointed a female Malaysian scientist in 2011 to be earths ambassador in case of contact. In 2009 the VATICAN came out and said , do not be fearful of aliens they are our cosmic brothers and sisters, we were all created by the same god. They are obviously preparing the world little by little. Now if it’s for false flag reasons or real deal, we won’t ever be sure till it happens….
