Readers will discover thrilling tales of alien abductions and UFO sightings and will be invited to consider an age-old question: Are we alone in the universe, or have alien lifeforms already made contact?

    By: Eleanor Cardell

    Phones have come a long way since Alexander Graham Bell's first telephone call in 1876, a moment that changed the course of technology's history. President Franklin D.

In Flash Points: Power On!, readers will learn about the evolution of technology through pivotal moments in history, leading to society's growing dependence on technology.
