To celebrate the Academy Awards here in Hollywood, I have written
a comparison of the film CONTACT with the real life story of
Jocelyn Bell-Burnell, the young student astronomer who discovered
pulsars in 1967. Included are some links about pulsars, photos
from NASA, sound recordings of pulsars, and the official site
for the film Contact. Scroll down to to the page entitled "Making
Contact with Pulsars." I should also warn you about little green
men hanging around after St. Patrick's Day.
