    Book Search Request!

    Hi All,

    Apologies for another help me find it request, but I've trying to locate the title of a novel a read years ago and haven't been able to locate it. I'm hoping some here will recognize my description. As I remember it (probably wrong, but here it goes)

    -Story about earth communicating with aliens on a distant planet who's lifes pass way quicker than ours, told from the point of view of the aliens
    -Traces thier history and evolution
    -Earth sends a probe or a radio signal or something that they pick-up, they don't know what it is, but over time they monitor and start to understand it
    -We establish communication with them and start sending them information, but by the end they are way more advanced than us

    Apologies, but that's all I can remember of it... hoping someone can point me in the right direction

    I don't know what it is, but it sounds interesting. Hopefully someone can come up with an answer.

    Thanks, I am surprised I didn't remember it was that. I read that book years ago also, when it came out. He is a great writer of hard science and stretches the frontiers.
