Through The Wormhole: Are We Alone?

Aliens almost certainly do exist. So why haven’t we yet met E.T.? It turns out we’re only just developing instruments powerful enough to scan for them, and science sophisticated enough to know where to look. As a result, race is on to find the first intelligent aliens. But what would they look like, and how would they interact with us if we met? The answers may come to us sooner than we imagine, for one leading astronomer believes she may already have heard a hint of their first efforts to communicate.

    Every known species makes great efforts to colonize new habitats. If spiders could colonize outer space, they would colonize outer space. Aliens do NOT exist. If they had existed, they would have colonized the Earth and the rest of the universe.

      Maybe they can’t.

      assuming the universe is infinite, or at least so large, in our scope, it may as well be. these colonists could have started on the other side of the universe, maybe they are actively colonizing everything and just have not reached our part of space. what you said sounds very ignorant. i hope you will watch more docs and broaden you understanding before you comment like that again.

    damn u r narrow minded, space is even in the vacuum full of life…the moon is full of life..the elite dont want us to know, ever wonderd why we only see bad quality b/w pictures of the moon altough they have super hightec color space telescopes???
    Its even arrogant to think we are alone as there are billions and billions of habitable worlds out there!
    watch “moon rising part 1 and 2” for instance or look at some work from richard hoagland on mars and the moon alone, that will cure u

      Idiot.

    Who gave white liberal a thumbs up? seriously?

    To say aliens don’t exist is incredibly naive seeing as how we haven’t even fully chartered our own galaxy let alone the universe.saying they would colonize all of the universe assumes an incredible level of advancement, but to assume we are the only planet with life is close minded, truth being we don’t know and quite possibly never will

      Agreed. In my view the Hubble Deep Field images more less sealed the deal and put a guarantee on the existence of extra-terrestrial life in the universe.

      The Deep Field images are views of galaxies beyond our own through sections of sky at most the size of a few grains of sand on the tip of a finger held out at arms length to the night sky, from an Earthly perspective.

      Those small peep holes to the universe beyond our galaxy revealed ten’s of thousands of other galaxies, and longer exposure would likely show even more just in those small areas of the known universe(the Hubble Telescope collects photons/”light particles” and the longer the exposure the more particles are collected and thus the more revealing the image).

      Each of those galaxies potentially has millions of stars within it, with each star having the potential for numerous planets within it’s stellar circuit and with each planet comes the possibility of life developing.

      Grid out the night sky so each section for viewing is roughly the same size of the previous viewing areas and figure maybe 5,000 galaxies per section, 500,000 stars per galaxy with 2 planets per star(average) on the low ball and roughly figure out how many potential planets there is over the entire grid based on those low ball figures.

      Even assuming a figure of say 1 in 100 trillion as the chances of a planet developing life it’s still fairly likely that the overall calculations from the low ball figures would call for at least a few other life forms to exist out there.

      Then remember that just as the light from our galaxy blocks out light from more distant galaxies that the more distant galaxies visible in the Deep Field images also likely are blocking out the light from even more distant galaxies that the human race may never exist long enough to actually observe directly.

      It is arrogant and unscientific to outright deny the existence of other life forms in such a vast universe that we have but a tiny sliver of the big picture of after so many hundreds of years of astronomical advancement.

      Certainly it has not been proven that alien life does exist, but the only way to prove it DOES NOT exist is to directly observe and explore every planet in the universe.

      If “White Dribble” or anyone else has the data for every planet in the universe that shows life exists nowhere but here on Earth then I’d love to take a look at it.

    White liberal;
    we know we exist, yet we have failed to “colonize the rest of the universe”…

  • http://DOCHEAVEN RR

    YEAH WHITE LIBERAL, AND IF UR GONNA GO DOWN THAT ROUTE, THEN PERHAPS WE ARE THE ALIENS THAT HAVE COLONIZED ELSEWHERE AND WE DONT EVEN KNOW IT. OR… THE UNIVERSE AND THE PHYSICAL ASPECTS OF SPACE, TIME AND DIMENSION IS AN ENTITY THAT IS BEYOND HUMAN COMPREHENSION, THEREFORE WE AVOID THE THIS UNCERTAINTY BY REFERRING TO INFINITY. THIS IS JUST ANOTHER WORD TO SATISFY OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE UNIVERSE AND IN ESSENSE, DEMONSTRATES OUR LITTLE LNOWLEDGE OF WHAT IS REALLY OUT THERE, OR INDEED, WHAT OUT THERE IS. JUST A THOUGHT…
