58. yes there is... drake equation
Edited on Tue Jun-28-11 12:43 AM by nadinbrzezinski
and recent findings of the basis of life in deep space and comets, try following the xenobiology at NASA... or is NASA making up their data as they go?

For example it is suspected that the formation of OCEANS on rocky worlds is common

Read on the Drake Equation. REALLY, READ ON IT.

I understand that this is threatening to many humans on earth for not faith reasons, ontological reasons. IF (and when) we find evidence that yes, there is life out there... and we are quite close in historic terms, I know many humans will not accept it. Why? IT IS THREATENING for ontological reasons. In fact the same reasons that led to that little problem with Galileo and why it was so threatening to the church...

And when we do... it will be the greatest discovery since oh FIRE. Yes with that large of the implications as well.

Oh and one more thing, up to ten years ago you could say that there was one solar system... we now know of 563 xeno planets... how many stars? How many do you think will have planets in the goldy lock zone? by the way this is not wanting to believe.. the EVIDENCE as in scientific evidence is POINTING IN THIS DIRECTION,in fact, we will need to revise the planet number for Drake... there are more than we thought... or that Frank Drake believed existed in the 1960s when planetary formation was thought to be RARE...

By the way aliens may be as simple as bacteria...
