I dont think it is off topic at all. The quote you posted implies that nasa hasnt found life as yet. My point is, They havent explored space enough
to know. The international space station sits about 200 miles above the earth. The earth,s atmosphere extends out to 10,000 kilometers.
The Earth’s atmosphere extends out 10,000 km above the surface of the planet; although, it is extremely tenuous at this altitude. Only the
lightest gases, like hydrogen and helium can be found there. It is from this layer of the atmosphere, called the exosphere, that molecules from Earth
can escape into space.
I believe hands on is better than a probe travelling to a distant planet for answers.
And your quote
Are they clutching at straws to pander to public tastes in the hopes of keeping their funding? Or is there something else at work here?
I posted my opinion about the funding and speculated about a future program. Then i pointed out the fact that we dont send humans into space because
i believe we have never been there and much resources have been waisted with the idea we have. Point is Nasa is a waist of time and resources and
should be scrapped.
We havent even begone to fix the problems here on earth, Why should we put so much resources into space?
Use those resources to fix our planet first. We cannot sit and hope some aliens or god will come down and save us from ourselves. We need to be more
the fact is GFAJ-1 is not a fact as of yet and we are all speculating at this point. So are they grasping at straws? maybe. If we cant even put
humans into space, than why push so hard at finding life? That is my main point.
Sorry, I am not a writer and have a hard time expressing things on paper.So if i seemed to go off topic it was to get to my main point.
Starred and flagged. I find it very interesting but find many faults in our logic to find the truth. If these life forms where not found above 10.000
km. or greater above earth, than wouldnt any life found be part of earth and not space?
