The Universe is So Big, Aliens Must Exist

Casually mentioning the Drake's equation to sound smarter than I really am. ๐Ÿ˜‚

In terms of time, our Universe still pretty young. So we can be the first worms

The observable Universe is, http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20160610-it-took-centuries-but-we-now-know-the-size-of-the-universe, about 93 billion light years in diameter.

Did someone collaborated in SETI search? I did it for 8 months I think. It was a strange feeling, but helping with calculations - it's a good reason for electricity bills. And it was a pioner project, years passing and now we using the same approach in order to fight Covid

This talk has some interesting points

I was waiting for this video about 14 months(but it's hard to digest when you working at the same time)

Can we expand 'alien life' term? Like should they also have a dna? For example minerals- they have family, they grow. Girls love some of them

I always used to say, "Plants have feelings too"

via https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extraterrestrial_life is very human centric, "Extraterrestrial lifehttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extraterrestrial_life#cite_note-1 is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypothesis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life which may occur outside of Earth and which did not originate on Earth. Such life might range from simple https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prokaryote (or comparable life forms) to beings with civilizations far more advanced than https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civilization.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extraterrestrial_life#cite_note-NYT-20131118-2https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extraterrestrial_life#cite_note-3 The https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drake_equation speculates about the existence of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sapience elsewhere in the universe. The science of extraterrestrial life in all its forms is known as https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astrobiology."

I think life moves by the atom
ArthurNov 11, 2020, 4:44 PM
So, we can't travel outside of our solar system(we can debate it at separate place).

And cold oceans can be our best bet to find bacteria with alien origin(Yes, I also don't think that Venus is habitable by flying whales that producing a lot of "custom-venus-air")

long story short: I like this article. It's giving me cool angle on a Mission to Europa.

read dark forest

I donโ€™t want to go into too much detail that might get me sent to an insane asylum, but the sheer amount of stars in the Universe and amount of planets makes it likely that there must be life somewhere other than here.

IF we assume that other life forms need water to survive, weโ€™ve already found other planets with a similar biosphere to the Earth.

On the tin foil hat side of the argument, Iโ€™m an avid UFO Hunters fanโ€ฆ.I believe aliens have visited Earth.

The fun thing is that it's so human-ish ๐Ÿ™‚ Similar to religion - we need to have a God that watching how we commit sins and then will judge us.

I have an article about fermi paradox(if someone interested): https://hackernoon.com/fermi-paradox-are-earth-on-quarantine-tlh3yag
