Geoffrey Marcy, a University of California, Berkeley, astronomer who found most of our first exoplanets, also spoke at the event as part of the group's brain trust.
"The universe is apparently bulging at the seams with the ingredients of biology," Marcy explained. Indeed, Marcy and other scientists have found a surprising number of Earth-like exoplanets in recent years — rocky planets the right distance from their suns to support water — suggesting that life as we know it is at least possible, if not probable, all over the universe..

What if Steven hawking has long been and will soon publicly be known as an Oracle for "ET"?
Theory: He has long been a vegetable human wise and "ET" has been telling us what they want us to hear from a trusted reputable scientific source . Who would not trust Steven hawking? The truth is anybody can talk through his computerized voice.
