In Space Case, something lands on Earth, but no one seems to realize what it truly is. The story by Edward Marshall provides an interesting theme for this episode of Reading Rainbow to explore. Scientists are on the lookout for organisms from space and have instruments in place to detect any communication that might be sent. The program shows locations in Arecibo, Puerto Rico, where the largest radio telescope is tuned to space sounds, and in California, where an observatory is set up for maximum observing opportunities. Other related books read in the program are Legend of the Milky Way by Jeanne M. Lee and Is There Life in Outer Space? by Franklyn M. Branley.
