Contact , Huang guan wen hua chu ban yu xian gong si in Chinese - Chu ban. After her college and graduate school years, she works as an astronomer with radio telescopes. She originally works on more 'conventional' studies, but as the years pass, she decides to follow her interests and work on the SETI project. She is assigned to work on the Argus project, a large radio telescope array designed to search the farthest reaches of the universe.

Sagan, Carl 1934-1996

One night, the radio telescopes pick up a signal: prime numbers, which would be extremely unlikely to be created by natural phenomena. After meticulously checking for hoaxes and radio interference, the Argus scientists confirm that the message is coming from the star system of Vega, twenty-six light years away. It is almost definitely from another civilization.

Prime numbers are not the only thing being transmitted in the Message. Two additional messages are broadcast: one is a playback of the very first Earth transmission into space, replayed to the planet to show that Earth has been noticed.

Unfortunately, the first transmission involves Hitler, to the embarrassment of many.

The second and far more important message is a blueprint for a machine, one designed to take five people somewhere. Nobody knows where, or if the machine will even take anyone anywhere. Speculation of doomsday devices are suggested, and many nations debate over who would build the Machine, which nations would have representatives in the Machine, or if the Machine will even be built at all.

Beyond the scientists and politicians, the religious forces weigh in on the subject. Some argue that the Message is from God, others suggest Satan. Two prominent American preachers, Rev.

Both preachers are distrustful of the scientists working on the project and argue that religious leaders should be on hand to help translate the message. As more and more of the Machine blueprints are recorded, the more and more the tensions between the religious and the scientific increase.

Eventually the Machine is built, but destroyed by a bomb placed on one of the parts. The American who was supposed to go in the Machine, David Drumlin, is killed in the explosion.

This causes the American representative to Vega to be Eleanor. A second machine is built near Hokkaido, Japan, and Ellie and four other people representing different nations, cultures, and religions board.

The Machine is activated, and the five of them are shot into a wormhole. They are shot in a kind of cosmic mass transit system, viewing all sorts of star systems one of which is Vega and end near the center of the galaxy, where a large docking station awaits.
