In an exciting and interesting announcement from the NASA headquarters in Washington, DC, there have been talks of evidence of real alien life forms in our universe. The discussion and news stem from a panel of scientists who met early Tuesday morning to discuss NASA’s search for alien life and habitable worlds.
There will be “strong indications” of alien life within a decade and “definite evidence” of it within 20 to 30 years, NASA’s chief scientist announced during the panel discussion.
“We know where to look. We know how to look,” Ellen Stofan said during the panel discussion Tuesday. “In most cases, we have the technology, and we’re on a path to implementing it.”
Stofan was quick to add: “We are not talking about little green men. We are talking about little microbes.”
Her colleague John Grunsfeld, a former astronaut and associate administrator for the agency’s Science Mission Directorate, agreed.
“I think we’re one generation away in our solar system, whether it’s on an icy moon or on Mars, and one generation [away] on a planet around a nearby star,” Grunsfeld said at the same discussion.
Jeffery Newmark, NASA’s interim director of heliophysics, added: “It’s definitely not an if, it’s a when.”
