Science is a wonderful tool, but once you start thinking of it in absolutes you become ignorant and biased. Stay skeptical, not of aliens, but of your accepted perception of reality through any medium or instrument. Edit : So, my point? If you can't trust light, it is not a tool for measurement. If it is not a tool for measurement, what is? I say nothing, in reality. Though we can enjoy our delusions of grandeur and believe that we can measure infinity, I would like to think that we are the infinite. I could be wrong, but I'm holding on to a belief, not a formula or constant, and beliefs are more flexible.

The gravity of a massive object can "bend" light around it.
So by understanding how this process works, scientist can use the "gravitational lense" to see objects behind a galaxy, by piecing together the light that has been "bent" in our direction.
