Book description
In 1973, Duncan Lunan, an eminent Scottish scientist, deciphered the mysterious radio signals that had puzzled scientists ever since they were received in the 1920s. Lunan identified them as a series of star maps apparently transmitted by a space-probe circling the earth. The messages pointed to an origin in the constellation Bootes 13,000 years ago - from a planet long considered uninhabitable. The startling discovery has since been supported by the January 1974 account that Russian scientist have been detecting similar signals. Has Lunan stumbled upon an SOS signal from a civilization searching for another home before its own planet burned up in the heat of its expanding sun? Dis those far-off intelligences found their colony in time? Are they even now possessed of the knowledge that we exist?
