Absolutely agree stanlee.
Our science knows so much about everything until it is proved that they are mistaken especially when it comes to Astrophysics and Astro-biology .
For years science was convinced the Mars Polar caps were formed by CO2 and we were unlikely to find any water on Mars .

Here it is for you mate
I think its enough to scare the bejesus out of them if they receive it

I wonder why just recently our governments have begun to put extensive search into Earth like planets.

Love that bebo have got a profile for it, going to be fun checking that out in 2050 when we're due a message back!

Although saying that, isnt it a worry that the first messages sent to any possible aliens living in this system comes from members of a social networking site? Cant imagine what humans reactions would be if we recieved something similar from aliens.

Thanks! This thread also begs the question....If we get a response, will it be shared with the public?

LOL at least they will know to steer clear of this part of the Galaxy

Hopefully we will be part of the larger community or at least know of ET existence before 2049 and any reply will be old news .

If a moon was a neccessity for life to begin on a planet...does it, or any of these newly discovered planets have one?

Just a consideration we must address if we are searching seriously.

And to say that a signal we send takes X amount of time to reach it does not mean a reply would be sent at the same speed using similar technology.

Lots to consider and fascinating stuff eh.

This is logical. If there is life around vents in the ocean on earth, then searching oceans of Europa makes sense.

In a biocentric universe, it wouldn't surprise me if life was abundant everywhere.

You don't need to have a moon to support life, it is all dependant on many variables such as planet size, proximity to star, etc. A moon is NOT needed, but it certainly makes it easier as far as we know. Anyways, we don't currently have the technology to see moons, they are far to small at that distance.

Either that or decide to eliminate our planet so we dont carry on clogging up their airwaves with people asking silly questions like 'duuuude, do you like have a macdonalds over there?'


reply to post by nerbot
 


They could well have, but I dont think the technology we have allows us to detect bodies that small yet. Although with the rate that its improving it might not be too long before they can start looking for them.

becuase its only recently weve had the technology to detect them.

gortex, M dwarfs are problematic for complex life even though M dwarfs are more numerous. Stars like sol have a HZ roughly 9 times as wide as M class stars giving alot more prime real estate.

Statistically speaking theres twice as much HZ real estate around G type stars in the galaxy than M stars.

Also these planets are super earths probably more like neptune with thick cloud decks and massive pressures near the surface. Not a place any human can go. Kepler is the mission that will find us better planets.

Hi All

Sorry for being off topic, but can anyone tell me where we are looking at on earth at 1:58 into the OP's video ?? Is that a real video of earth or CGI? those round shapes and triangular lines looked strange to me .. thanks

Really good video S&F.

I've always believed in the multi-world theory. I think that just statistically speaking there have to be other planets like Earth when you have billions of stars in our galaxy.

I'm predicting about 100-150 years before we have a good way of traveling through space (i.e. faster than light travel).

As for the radio messages (including SETI), I really don't see the practical reasoning behind it. I mean, if there is an intelligent race who's to say that they share the same type of technology as us? At the very best they'd receive some form of static or distorted signal.

The subject heading is misleading. It should be 'why we MIGHT NOT be alone' not 'why we ARE NOT alone'. Because the information put forward points to the possibility, not the proof.
Aside from that, we really need to get rid of our preconceptions that life has to be modelled on our own needs. Other forms of life may in fact require neither water nor solid ground even.

Perhaps,

however, there is Enough proof to conclude there is life beyond our planet.

Surely, if there was life elsewhere we would have found out by now ? I mean all these reports of ufos, why don't they just land on the whitehouse lawn and be done with it

With the numerous stars out there I find it hard to believe we are unique. I am also insanely jealous that future generations might get a signal back from one of these so called planets and I will be long gone. I wonder if they will look like reddish floating heads that spit fire?
A huge Megan Fox might be a good thing indeed but lets just hope her speech is still underdeveloped.

It's really pointless to explain anything on this site unless it directly supports somethin conspiracious but I'll try..

The poster is saying that scientists would ignore this claim.
In science we never accept anything as a fact unless it can be scientifically proven. If that alien would provide us with evidence for his claims we'd believe him. The poster is simply bashing science because he fails to understand it and because they don't support his beliefs without any evidence.

It's almost like a cult or something. An anti-science/skepticism movement.

The "searching" for extraterrestrial intelligent lifeforms, it's a very expensive joke. Bogus programs as SETI have been spending zillions of US$ and NONE results come to public and I'm sure that they have lots of results. Except when something extraordinary and embarrassing happens out of the cover up agenda, as the crop glyphs in Chilbolton/UK, exposing an alien DNA helix, plus a encrypted disk-like figure, a Zeta Gray face and a possible Anunnaki face, answering the message of Arecibo. Anyway none conclusive result or official statement happened.


I just don't get it. Why search alien life forms light years away, with radio telescopes, if they are settled right here in this solar system since ancient times??? There are active bases in "our" moon (that probably in an entire hollow space station), fact confirmed by various retired astronauts of NASA, as Buzz Aldrin and Edgard Mitchell... There are several evidences of ancient civilization in Mars available in hundreds of images took by MOC. Also the retired Russian pilot, Col. Marina "Lady MIG" Popovich, during many public conferences (out of Russia), did claim that the two moons of Mars are hollow space-stations... It seems that these people are very reliable sources, huh?? Should I mention all physical evidences of alien presence on Earth?? UFO sights, abduction reports, denounces from reliable whisteblowers as John Lear and Milton Cooper, exposing secret exchange programs between certain Earth governments and some extraterrestrial races... And hundreds of ancient buildings spread all around the planet, that modern human technology can't even reproduce. IMO the research for Earth-like planets should be concerning about future colonies to mankind, 'cos isn't necessary any radio telescope to find extraterrestrial life forms, just 'cos they ever were here.
