In May and June, StarDate brings you feature-length excerpts from new books in astronomy. In Paul Murdin’s Are We Being Watched? find out why he thinks ET will be found in this century. William H. Waller explains how why we think we know our galaxy’s shape from our place inside it in The Milky Way. And find out how one physicist is trying to change how scientists see time in Lee Smolin’s Time Reborn.
