    NASA Announced Finding About Extraterrestrial Life

    The U.S. space agency NASA claims she has made a discovery which is relevant to the search of extraterrestrial life. It is probably not a discovery of a life form from another planet.

    The new findings in the category of astrobiology will be presented on forthcoming Thursday at a press conference which will be held around 11:00 AM (GMT -8). According to NASA, the discovery will have significant impact on the search for evidence for the existence of extraterrestrial life.

    The presence of the last scientist feeds the speculation that it is a discovery on Mars, because they did research in the past life on the red planet.

    Thanks for the full translation, emuhack!

    I am very excited about this. I don't really know what to believe from this, but if this is true, I can scream ''HAHA!!'' in the face of people who always say that I am stupid for believing in extraterrestrial life. I mean, how small is the chance that we're the only life forms in the whole universe?

    I agree. But also at the same time it will probably make the whack jobs that believe that they were abducted and so forth twice as excited as those of us that logically believe in extraterrestrial life.

    We are not alone. The vast amount of space it is only a matter of time when something is discovered. I hope it is in my lifetime (Unless it's triffids, they scared the nuts off me.)

    I dunno why ppl think that this is the only planet that could possibly contain any life-forms. Just looking around at the diversity of life that exists and no longer exists here is a good indication, the universe is probably full of all kinds of life. I think ppl have to stay inside a kindergarten level in terms of the size of their universe or it is too much for them and alot of religious beliefs (even though there is no reason religion and science should work against each other) lead ppl to believe that it doesn't exist if it is written about in their doctrine.

    I don't think our planet is the only that could support life, but the odds of there being other intelligent life which has developed to a similar or more advanced state as/than we have could be astronomically low.

    Or maybe we're no so advanced as we'd like to think we are? Maybe other planets have way more resources as in more water, more different types of metals ect than us that has allowed them to be as advanced as us.

    Or maybe there is a God or are Gods who have authority over a planet each, with their own form for creation. I personally believe in God, and don't think it contradicts science, it furthers more shows that the universe was created and has laws to it. If everything was random, everything would be chaotic and wouldn't have so much harmony to it. But thats my belief, anybody can be right.

    I don't really think we are that advanced to tell ya the truth, at least not for being on a planet that is 4.5 billion years old. I guess at some point life didn't advance much for a few billion years in the early soup-like stage of our planet's existance. It takes a beem of light 100,000 years just to go form one side of our galaxy to the other, and millions of galaxies have been discovered. I just can't imagine the kind of technology it would take to communicate over these vast distances in a timely fashion. And I don't think we have aliens here visiting us, but probably time-travelers or something like that.
