To all of our salient friends here at ATS who challenge the existence of other-worldly life, or even that disclosure happens more and more every day:

Here's a little tidbit from NASA today:



Cambridge, Mass. – NASA predicts that 100 million worlds in our own Milky Way galaxy may host alien life, and space program scientists estimate that humans will be able to find life within two decades.
Speaking at NASA’s Washington headquarters on Monday, the space agency outlined a plan to search for alien life using current telescope technology, and announced the launch of the Transiting Exoplanet Surveying Satellite in 2017. The NASA administrators and scientists estimate that humans will be able to locate alien life within the next 20 years.


First of all, NASA already knows life forms on other planets exist and this is just another form of "disclosure" (no matter how dishonest and untoward this statement is) and second of all----seriously? Do you know how many people actually 'get' that life forms on other planets already exist?

Here's the greatest line of all:


“Just imagine the moment, when we find potential signatures of life. Imagine the moment when the world wakes up and the human race realizes that its long loneliness in time and space may be over — the possibility we’re no longer alone in the universe,” said Matt Mountain, director and Webb telescope scientist at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, which plans to launch the James Webb Space Telescope in 2018.


Yeah, just imagine the moment when everyone finds out you've been lying through your teeth for more than 40 years.

Here's the best line of all: (An admittance, if you will)


“Do we believe there is life beyond Earth?” asked former astronaut and NASA Administrator Charles Bolden. “I would venture to say that most of my colleagues here today say it is improbable that in the limitless vastness of the universe we humans stand alone.”


So, here's what I have to say to you NASA: Humans have been proving there is life in the Universe for many decades, but you ridiculed them all, started the notion of "conspiracy theories." and laughed your NASA laugh.

If this is the way you are letting the Sheeple know there is life on other planets, then so be it. But please be sure to include an apology to all of the people who have been discredited, laughed at, jailed or killed along the way for spending countless hours and even lifetimes in the search for truth.

I see this and to me all it is is another scheme from a government organization.

This is the probably the biggest thing that NASA has said in a very long time, and that's all you have to say...that it's just another "scheme?"

Basically, today NASA came out and said "We think there is life on other planets."

This is disclosure. This is buttering people up for the truth. This is big. This is more than a "scheme."

Big picture channel please.

I am on the big picture channel. NASA says a lot of things for funding. That's all it is.

It's not really that exciting imo. NASA was still careful not to say intelligent life. They've been sending rovers to Mars for years now for a quest for life, they need funding. And even then if intelligent life was ever found, we'd never know about it.

Okay. So NASA goes from totally denying life on other planets throughout it's history, to threatening its astronauts to secrecy, to cooperating with the intelligence community for most of its existence to cover up the truth....

to saying today, "Yeah, basically, everybody here today agrees there has to be life on other planets..."

but for you, it's just another day at the office.

Man, you must lead an exciting life.

And apparently Matt Drudge---who gets 20 million visitors a month to his site---seemed to think it was a big enough deal to put it on his front page, so I'm going to err on the side of caution here and go with Drudge on this one.

It's a pretty impressive headline.

There's something in the article that bothers me a little.


The NASA panel says that ground-based and space-based technology – including the Hubble Space Telescope, the Kepler Space Telescope and the Spitzer Space Telescope – will be able to determine the presence of liquid water, an essential sign of potential alien life.


Is that what they're considering "life?"

I'm not a scientist, but has it been shown that no possible life can develop without water? I grew up on science fiction stories with aliens in just about every imaginable environment, including some in which water was poisonous to them.

I wonder what NASA is really saying.

Frank Zappa said he doenst believe there is any intelligent life out there on other planets. If there isnt any here, why should there be any elsewhere?"

Reality and logic says there must be. I support that. Its been here, theyve been here...and we continue to ignore the fact. There will never be a "disclosure" either of something we have already and deny.

Do most of you understand just how far behind NASA/government is behind public acceptance of that very obvious fact given what we actually suspect and know?

I date back to before the infamous Drake Equation emerged out of the Order of the Dolphins group that looked into the possibility of live elsewhere in the Universe. Frank Drake, Dr. John Lilly and Carl Sagan were members of that group. The unofficial name of the group came about because one member (evidently wealthy) created gold pins for the several members for their supposedly unofficial work in setting the stage for how to factor in the scientific possibility that other life was out there and start presenting that concept to a globe that thought that nothing was or could be out there except maybe a God-like entity. Need it be mentioned that this the Drake Equation came about long after UFOs were a troubling sore point for the US military and government?

Of course, anthropocentric beliefs are an ingrained aspect of human existence and counter ideas even bulwarked by tons of UFO sightings and data over the decades and the amazingly grown scientific info that all point toward multiple life forms sharing the galaxy with us are still seen as philosophical discussions never taken quite seriously or merely as a means of sci-fi boggyman tales.

(Perhaps I should do a thread on it. I doubt that the topic has been hardly touched on ATS.)

They may be referring to "human-ish" life, or at the very least "life as we know it". They have most likely already found alien life somewhere, but now are seeking familiar life. That is my opinion, they are saying some form of life we are familiar with, or really close, will be found elsewhere in 20+ or - years. And by form of life, I suspect of the animal or insect variety, not just algaes, microbes, or plants. Dare I say humans or homo-whatever? No I do not dare say. Pick a era or period of extinction, maybe they aren't extinct, maybe they thrive, just not here or better, not now.

Not alone in 'this' universe... Maybe proof and even brief direct contact not in 20 years, but in 200+ years it could happen... Again.

If humanity survives the times ahead, and has advanced and evolved enough...

Until then, we may find the potential for life elsewhere, but nothing substantial.

They won't let anything more than that happen. First we must advance beyond the human animal...

What if "they" are not exactly aliens from a place far, far away, but are highly advanced, enhanced and evolved humans and are from a TIME and reality far, far into a future alternative reality?

Umm not really they're just saying what everybody is saying.... that life is probably out there. There have already been lots of predictions we'll find live in the next 10-30 years.

What if we don't, though? Surprises can happen. No gurantees we'll find it in our solar system. And it'll take a while even to eliminate our solar system as a home for ET bacterium. Even if we eliminate it as a possibility on Mercury and Venus and Mars.. we still have to look at the moons of the giant planets. Some science fiction writers have speculated life might live in the atmosphere's of the some of the other planets.

However, this leads me to believe maybe we already found it:
www.nbcnews.com - Tiny Blobs and Tunnels in Meteorite Revive Debate Over Life on Mars...

MAYBE. The thing about the meteorite goes back maybe 20 years. We know Mars is probably sterile today, but the past?

Oceans? We think probably. Not as big as Earth's, though.

Oceans:
www.huffingtonpost.com - Mars Ocean? Caltech Scientists Say They've Found Strong Evidence For Ancient Body Of Water (PHOTOS) ...
www.sciencedaily.com - Mars could have supported life: Ten years on Mars leads to livable mud...

Oxygen? Yes.

Oxygen:
www.marsdaily.com - Study: Mars may have had ancient oxygen-rich atmosphere...

What if WE are the ET's? The martians?

Here's what a professors in Gainesville, Florida says:

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for 'intelligent' life being discovered and I agree with the poster before me. It's old news in the grand scheme of things and NASA has been dragging their behinds for years. The closest thing they will ever admit to is alien bacteria. Not a hug leap in my opinion. And it's still going to take 20 years before they even admit that. Woopwoop I can't wait.

We all know that life very well exists outside of our planet. The reason this is big news is a highly respected agency under the government thinks we will find life outside of our own planet.

Intelligent or not, the discovery of any "living" thing outside of Earth proves we are not alone.

NASA is aware of "life" everywhere in space and also inter-dimensional travelers as well.

But the brooking report is still the operating principal concerning disclosure.

It's also possible the liquid water is acidic like vinegar. So just having the presence of water doesn't mean there's a good place for life to develop.

here:
www.sciencedaily.com - Mars could have supported life: Ten years on Mars leads to livable mud...

..........
"While Mars is too cold now to have the liquid water needed for life, we've had evidence for past water activity on the planet from satellite images of valleys and analysis of rocks by the Rovers," Dr de Souza said.

"But the water that once shaped those landscapes and minerals was as acidic as vinegar.

"Our latest research has found not only the earliest episode of water activity documented yet by the Opportunity Rover, but that the geochemistry of the 4 billion year old rocks indicates extensive deposits of past water that's among the freshest, most life-sustaining found so far anywhere on Mars.

Dear jonnywhite,

Thanks, I never even considered that.

I hope nobody minds if I file this whole thing in my "Get to later" folder. There doesn't seem to be much information yet. Still speculating.

With respect,
Charles1952

Do you have any evidence whatsoever about NASA threatening its astronauts to secrecy? You seem pretty confident with your assertions - it would be nice to see it backed up with some evidence, otherwise this is nothing more than a bunch of opinionated assumptions.

Regarding alien life, I've seen nothing that would count as evidence for extra-terrestrial life. Sure there's some weirdness around the UFO phenomena, but nothing has been quantified. I think if NASA say they will find life in 20 years they will offer empirically acceptable evidence, not blurry YouTube videos of lights the size of pixels, nor sketchy lying individuals making claim to mile-high glass towers on Mars, nor hollow-moon spaceship theories.

I doubt that "we're not alone in the universe" means that we share the Universe with insects.

What they mean is that we're not alone in that there is other INTELLIGENT life. Not rocks or blobs, but conscious life.
