I have allways been interested in space and the infinite questions about space.
I hope I can be a part of helping SETI to discover something of value.
On summernights with a clear sky I often look up at the stars and wonder...Is there anyone out there looking in our direction who wonders as well...
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Extraterrestrial life do exist. I have no doubt.
Maybe we`ll discover life with a probe that takes samples from a planet. In that case it`ll be microscopic.
1. The universe is neverending.
2. Life on Mars(microscopic in a rock), has been found.
3. There are two planets that holds and indicates life (Earth and Mars) in a little solar system like ours.
4. Plans to investigate the moon Europa has started. Theories indicate that there`s water under the ice and vulcanic activities.
If we - the human race - don`t destroy our planet => ourselves, we will see wonders beond our imagination in the future.
I think we`re at the brink of discovering life "out there". Our radio-signals are 50 light years out in space. Our signals have reached several stars and their planets - maybe thats enough. We have been sending information for 50 years and the answer will come...I hope I`m around to witness it:) Maybe another 50 - 1 mill. years will go before we recieve an answer.(not in my lifetime - damn)
If You`re walking in the forrest you often see an anthill. It is interesting to put a stick in the hill and make a little mess. The ants try hard to repair the damage. The intelligence behind your attack is beyond their apprehension. The difference between ant and human intelligence - why should that difference be one of a kind.
