That's the beauty of an apparently-infinite universe: It's more useful to ask, "what isn't out there?"
One of my college astronomy texts had a deep field picture (i.e. of nothing in particular) taken by some ground observatory. All you can really see in the 2 x 3-inch pic are thousands of blue-white dots/pixels. According to the caption, the pic was something like a tenth-degree of arc across, and every dot was a galaxy.
Now, if that's not freakin' amazing, I have no idea what amazing is.
What came to mind right away when I first saw it was, "Given this, how can anyone believe life exists nowhere else?"
If I can find this pic, I'll post it with references...

just think, an alien with such a telescope 500 light years away could see us in the middle ages.

To look into the past you need travel no further than your local library or spend enough time on the web researching.
The written word is the greatest time traveling device ever created. You can see what happened in 1412 or 3 AD if you study enough.
Fair enough MrWupy,but you have to admit it would be sweet seeing it with your own eyes dont you think.
