Baker & Taylor
The discovery of an alien civilization prompts the formation of an investigative team of scientists who will only age a few years on the journey, although 120,000 years will have passed on Earth before they can return. Reprint.

McMillan Palgrave
When evidence of an advanced civilization is discovered by SETI astronomers, an expedition into the far reaches of the galaxy is planned and an eclectic team of scientists is chosen to make the trip. But because the origin of the alien signals is thousands of light-years away, the crew will age only a few years while millennia pass on Earth. And though they are ready to face the ramifications of such a voyage, none of the starfarers are prepared for what awaits them at the outer edge of the cosmos--or back at the planet they once called home.

& Taylor

When SETI astronomers stumble upon evidence of a highly advanced starfaring civilization, an expedition made up of a motley assortment of scientists is put together to investigate, but their journey could have unexpected ramifications
