‘It’s not a matter of if, but when we will detect signs of alien life’
I mean, they’ve detected gasses only produced by marine life on earth on a planet that’s light years away. To me, that just confirms it but whatever. They’re gonna be testing planets and moons over the coming years in hopes of liquid water. Where there’s liquid water, there is life. Fact. They think within 2 years we will have found undeniable signs of life.
We’ve gone beyond Roswell in 47, microbacteria on Mars, ice on Mars, all things that may hint at that possibility. At this point, it’s all but printed that alien life exists. And anyone that disagrees is just wrong.
They even think Europa, one of Jupiters icy moons, may contain life. I think there’s even possibilities that life can exist without water, just because that’s how it is here doesn’t mean that’s what it is everywhere in space.
I think that discovery of alien life will change our understanding of biology, maths, physics, chemistry and survival forever. I’m just glad that the closest possible lifeforms are still too far for us to just go kidnap and dissect.
When, and it’s soon, the news breaks that I, and many others, have known for fucking years, I hope that people react kindly, and openly. I have a feeling there will be chaos in a lot of religion orientated places though.
Space is endless, it’s vast and always expanding, and so are the possibilities. It’s possible that some alien life will never be detectable to us. It’s also possible we can detect but never communicate or touch them. It’s possible they may be just like us.
The change this will bring to the world is incredible. And I can’t wait. Best news ever, I’m so excited.
