But what if I told you that the story was written with real science in mind?  Or that Dr. Arroway is based on a real person?Her name is Dr. Jill Tarter, and, like her fictitious counterpart, she really does work for theSearch for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) institute.  In fact, she was employee number one.  She helped to found SETI in 1984.  Over the years, SETI has become the research home for scientists interested in studying the question of life in the universe.
