to provide evidence of life on other planets?
will it be the earth based space agencies such as nasa/esa using astronomy or will it come from someone with a good clear picture/video of an alien
the modern ufo (flying saucer) has been with us since the 1940s, 60 years later and we still have nothing in the way of concrete evidence. In fact
most turn out to be hoaxes or known objects.
here is a very possible timeline for astronomers.
end of 2007- cnes telescope COROT finds 20 planets (expected result) in the habitable zone around dimmer stars than our sun
end of 2012- Kepler telescope searches 100,00 stars and finds 50 earth size planets in the habitable zone around stars like our sun,(nasas expected
2016- ESA/Nasa joint mission darwin telescope confirms 5 of those 50 planets have atmospheres very much like earth- giving first indirect evidence of
life on other planets. Darwin may also provide direct evidence by detecting "biomarkers" in the atmosphere.
Will we get some solid evidence from the ufo field before 2016? only 9 more years and if the last 60 are anything to go by I think the astronomers are
going to win.
