So, the biggest news making the rounds in geek circles today is the announcement by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) that they expect to locate alien life in our universe within the next 20 years.
According to the space agency, as many as 100 million worlds in our own Milky Way galaxy may host alien life, and finding them shouldn't take long from here.
“Just imagine the moment, when we find potential signatures of life. Imagine the moment when the world wakes up and the human race realizes that its long loneliness in time and space may be over — the possibility we’re no longer alone in the universe,” said Matt Mountain, director and Webb telescope scientist at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore.
"What we didn’t know five years ago is that perhaps 10 to 20 per cent of stars around us have Earth-size planets in the habitable zone,” he added before continuing: “It’s within our grasp to pull off a discovery that will change the world forever.”
It sounds good– great in fact. The only this is that before we go to other planets in search of alien life, isn't it better to tend to the ones we already have here? Likes these down below:
