How close are we really to finding Extra Terrestrial Life. I think we have already but are somewhat divided as to what we are exactlylooking at.
Let me explain I recently got introduced to the work of John Parkes -

royalsociety.org...

And I couldn't stop thinking of the work of Astrobiologist Richard Hoover of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center

www.space.com...

Than there's this

phys.org...

Any opinions

Could find it tomorrow.
Might never find it.
Might not even exist.

So somewhere between 10 minutes ago and never.

It's probably right in-front of our faces .

There are some compelling incidents that seem to point to them having found us. Of course none of it is concrete with irrefutable evidence. But we should be open to the possibility that it's possible...

Sadly....Not at all.

I think we will find life in our own solar system. Not intelligent life, but life.

Far far away from recognition. Why do I say that? It's obvious. They are here, have always been here, and come and go freely to and from here.

We have no idea what to look for being they are perhaps 100's of thousands or millions of years ahead.

Life as we DONT know it

Look in the mirror.

We are them.

They put us here (planet Earth).

Don't worry. There's nothing any Earthling can do to hurt you.

Exactly right. It's like when people get excited over finding a meteorite. The entire Earth is a product of the processes that created the meteorite.

I think I may of posted this to the wrong forum. Administrators I hope you don't mind but I am going to re-post this on a more scientific forum. Hopefully it will open discussion on topics such as the work of ocean microbiologist Karen Lloyd at the University of Tennessee and how her work continuing on from Parkes will change our understanding of life.
Just out of curiosity how many of the people that posted replies read the actual posts to the links I provided? Just wondering

Complex life form cannot pass the planet it lives. Just purified carbon.
Its way of the supreme being protect it self from infections.

So... never.

SPAM! lol!!

ET life has already been discovered. It has also discovered us.

No proof but us crazies who are freaked out by Whitley Strienber book covers.

Talking won’t prove crap to “skeptics” who even with a sore butt from an anal probe would argue “placebo affect” (makes we want to ask them on a camping trip!! LOL!)

Binary questions do not provide answers. Expand your horizons!

Perhaps.. But I was just expressing logic as we... the infantile species prob of the others.. haven't a clue as to what Alien life may be like.

It could also be just THOUGHT! We don't know...

I'm in the camp that believes they found microbial life on Mars during the Viking missions.
Clinton and the ALH rock...again. Microbial fossils.

Mork from Ork isn't going to land his egg on the White House lawn and go Nanoo Nanoo.
