    By Robert Bauval

    Exploring the latest findings in support of a cosmic origin for humanity, the authors expand on Sir Fred Hoyle’s theory of panspermia: that the building blocks of life arrived on Earth via comets in the distant past. They also reveal new discoveries about the dimensions of the Great Pyramid of Giza.

    Our Cosmic Ancestry in the Stars

    By Chandra Wickramasinghe, Ph.D.
    By Kamala Wickramasinghe, MA

    The authors show, with extensive scientific evidence, that life came from space, arriving via comets and interstellar dust--a concept known as panspermia. The authors explore the philosophical, psychological, cultural, and religious ramifications of this new scientific worldview and how it offers answers to many longstanding questions about the origins of life.
