CARL SAGAN
Contact

Sagan played a leading role in NASA’s Mariner Viking, Voyager, and Galileo expeditions to other planets. He received NASA and Distinguished Public Service medals for exceptional scientific achievement. His novel is set in the world of today, and details humankind's first contact with another civilization through the eyes of Ellie, director of SETI, the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence. The story promotes the notions that pi is not a random number but perhaps a coded message from the creators of the universe and that religion and science are not as far apart as many people believe.
