    Are we alone in the universe? Top NASA scientists say the answer is almost certainly “no.”

    I think it's less a question of when we find alien life and more a question of when they find us! It will either be the start of a new age of peace and enlightenment for mankind, or the end of life as we know it. I think that after getting to know us, they'll be leaning towards the latter.

    I think that if they wanted to 'destroy' us, they would have done it already. At least I hope so. (*Thinks about great flood, dinosaurs.)

    Agreed. We should get ready.
