First contact between man and extraterrestial life may be imminent and set to take place within the next two decades, according to the top astronomer at the SETI Institute.


Don't get to excited though:



"The chances of finding it I think are good, and if that happens I think it will happen in the next 20 years, depending on the financing."


emphasis on : depending on the financing.


That is one way to keep your job and retire in 20 years.

Sometimes I think it's best we don't know for sure. I wonder the implications if we do suddenly realize that something else is out there or even visiting here. In the back of your head you would remember every science fiction alien movie you've ever watched could one day be a reality. Alien or War of the Worlds comes to mind except maybe the common cold doesn't kill them and Sigourney Weaver isn't up to the task.

Maybe ignorance is bliss, I have enough to worry about terrestrially.

It looks like life, as advanced as we are, is pretty rare. They have been searching for a while now. In the grand scheme of things, we may be a little early or a little late. We have only been aware of other planets for such an infinitesimal amount of time compared to the age of the planet. Maybe during the time of T-Rex aliens were everywhere, but they all died out millions of years ago. It would be a miracle if humans survive another 10 thousand years.
Kind of sad really, I think finding other life would help us stop killing each other and focus on killing someone else. Go humans!

I wonder the same thing sometimes by observing nature. Survival of the fittest is not too kind to the less advanced life form.

Who is to say that the truth couldn't be so awful that ignorance might be bliss.

I don't think we have the evidence to suggest they are visiting or they exist, but I'm also not arrogant enough to think that humanity is so special that its unique. If it is, than maybe ignorance and the thought of them existing might be bliss.

Yet the non advance life are so resilient and its able to survive in just about every nook and cranny that we look in earth and we have such a hard time finding it in other places. Than with the vast size of our universe I can see how easy it can be to wonder.

Lol Sorry don't "space aliens" sound funny to you? Or is it just me? Nevermind I'll just finish watching television and drink my soda pop. Cheers!

Life as advanced as us is rare??? That's pretty arrogant, don't you think? I believe the multiverse is teaming with life, much of it, far more advanced than us!

That attitude is what holds humanity back, live in fear!!!

If you want definitive worldwide proof of alien civilizations in our galaxy then telescopes have to be built that are big/sensitive enough to detect their existence.

That stuff costs money.

Luckily there are some things which are in development which may answer that question if not within 20 years at least within 30 years.

We've reached a point where its no longer a technological hurdle to detect other technological civilizations in our galaxy in multiple ways.

Detecting radio or laser signals, detecting waste heat, detecting artificial lighting from alien 'cities' are all doable with today's technology if built big enough.

So its not a technological hurdle but rather a funding hurdle.

Haven't yet. I doubt by the time we have the missions to mars over the next 20 years we will find any either. I actually doubt we will ever have a manned mission to mars, or the moon again. They say it will happen by when? 2021, 2025 for Mars? No way, not in 10 years in this civilizations state.

Well well 20 years. Me think we already met aliens more or less they found us we did not found them.

2 things there is absolutely not 100% proof of, and may never be. Religion, and Aliens. Yes religion exists, but no one can prove that it's based off of factual people, and events. Same with aliens; the thing with aliens is, statistically they have to be out there somewhere, even if we never find each other, so until then we are stuck with the illegal ones.

Or

They've been here the whole time we just haven't metaphorically been looking up from our collective ant hills with the correct perspectives...

We aren't all that advanced.

If they're out there and more advanced than we are then they spotted us in the "Goldie Locks" zone a long time ago.

When they got here from their perspective we just split the atom, nuked a couple of cities, launched chemical rockets to our nearest celestial neighbors, hang out in low Earth orbit, pollute the atmosphere/oceans with fossil fuel/trash instead of cheaper, cleaner more abundant forms of energy. Chop down our forests to make paper to wipe our butts and live in ever increasing numbers in over crowded cities and towns.

Yeah, We be advanced alright...

I think if they came here, they would respect us. What do we do to other planets? Try to keep from spreading bacteria to them to keep the eco systems natural. Technically, we spread bacteria to Mars. Ok, so maybe they might small pox our **ses when they get here.

I completely disagree.

Recent evidence shows that circumstances for life (and this only applies to life as we KNOW it) are abundant in the universe.
Our "search" for life is nothing.

Only recently one of our 70s outdated probes entered deep space. We have to the moon, mars, titan, etc...but this is a joke compared to the distances in the universe. SETI and similar attempts, while certainly a "smart" thing to do...are nevertheless ineffective...it's only good since it's the ONLY feasible way for us to check whether an advanced civilization may exist that we assume they MAYBE COULD also send out radio waves etc. which we could detect. Nevertheless, I don't think it's effective.

There is IMHO not the tiniest bit of evidence to say that life as "advanced" as we are is rare. We don't have the means to come to this conclusion.

I agree with that too, imagine that from the time you are able to walk that you start walking and do so until you die in the scheme of things you barely made it to the mailbox at the end of your driveway. So how long do you think it would take to get across town or the country, and then to the other side of the planet.

In so far as seeking alien life as in say SETI, I would say yes, we will make contact, if it hasn't been made already. As far as making contact with aliens who have and are visiting us on earth, the contact has already happened IMO.
