Readers waiting for this title: Contact September 18, , Orbit. Contact , Legend. While on board, he reveals that his company has been covertly building a third copy of the machine in Hokkaido, Japan. The activation date is set for December 31, and Ellie, Vaygay and Devi are given three of the spots.
The other two are given to Abonnema Eda, a Nigerian physicist credited with discovering the theory of everything and Xi Qiaomu, a Chinese archaeologist and expert on the Qin dynasty.
The five board the machine thinking that the extraterrestrials will either give them an additional task or cancel the transmission from Vega so that the signal only lasts for another 26  years. Once activated, the dodecahedron transports the group through a series of wormholes to a massive station near the center of the Milky Way. The station contains a surreal Earth-like beach where the five are split up.
Ellie meets an extraterrestrial in a form indistinguishable from Ted Arroway, who explains his people's reasons for making contact, and tells her of their ongoing project to alter the properties of the universe by accumulating enough mass in Cygnus A to counter the effects of entropy.
Ellie is reunited with the other four travellers who have also met simulations of their loved ones. She captures video evidence of the encounter before the dodecahedron takes them back to Earth. Upon returning, the passengers discover that what seemed like many hours took no time at all from Earth's perspective.
They also find that all of their video footage has been erased, presumably by magnetic fields in the wormholes. After seeing that Hadden is apparently dead and that the transmission has somehow been stopped without a 26  year delay, government officials accuse the travellers of an international conspiracy. They blackmail Ellie and her fellow travellers into silence until more evidence can be found. Palmer Joss becomes one of the few people willing to believe her story that she can only justify on faith.
Ellie's mother dies before this project delivers its first result.
This not only provides evidence of her journey, but suggests that intelligence is behind the universe itself. Reading science fiction and fantasy as a child caused Carl Sagan to become an astronomer.
As an adult he preferred realistic stories that helped readers understand real science and history, like Robert Heinlein 's " —And He Built a Crooked House— " and L.
Sprague de Camp 's Lest Darkness Fall. In Sagan predicted that because of science fiction, "I know many young people who would, of course, be interested, but in no way astounded, were we to receive a message tomorrow from an extraterrestrial civilization". At the time, "the advance was the largest ever made for a book that had not yet been written. In the first two years it sold 1,, copies. It was a main selection of Book-of-the-Month-Club.
Sagan's friend, the physicist Kip Thorne , gave Sagan ideas on the nature of wormholes when Sagan was developing the outline of the novel.
Sagan named the novel's protagonist, Eleanor Arroway, after two people: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Contact Cover of the first edition.
