I am a 42 year old electrician and I presently live in Green Bay, WI.
My hobbies are photography, astronomy, quantum physiucs, aquariums, building models (aircraft and sci-fi) as well as some others.
I have some concerns about whether or not we\\'ll find intelligent life through the use of SETI, but that doesn\\'t mean the likely hood of failure should deter anyone.
When one looks at the Fermi Paradox, there are a host of things that weren\\'t considered, the largest of which is timing: being in the right place (somewhat irrelavent) at the right time during another civilization\\'s development to be able to pick up their stray EM emissions. Let\\'s face it, we may change our format of communication to the point where it mayn\\'t be technologically feasible for another race looking to detect us, they may have arrived at our point 100\\'s pf years ago and may have tightened up what and how much they emit...but what it comes down is the journey\\'s being taken to confirm or deny as best we presently are capable.
