We are all still waiting to hear if we are alone. Alone in the universe that is. I came across the article “THE SEARCH FOR ALIEN LIFE IS GETTING BIGGER, WEIRDER, AND MORE CONTENTIOUS” yesterday that made me think a little more about this.
SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) has been going on for some years now. Only recently, however, has the technology been available to determine if there are other planets out there. There are over 1,900 confirmed exoplanets now with more than 4,600 waiting on confirmation. The sky is becoming rich with potential homes for life in the universe. As the capability of our telescopes and instrumentation improves, those numbers are sure to grow rapidly in the decades ahead.
