Eldorado Posted April 2 #1 Share Posted April 2 Writing in the Spectator, Professor Sasha Hinkley, associate professor of astrophysics at the University of Exeter, said it is becoming "increasingly likely" signs of extraterrestrial life will be uncovered "within his lifetime", though that doesn't mean we will get to meet them. He said: "The likelihood of life existing in some form in the universe is quite high. Indeed, I would go as far as to say that it is looking increasingly likely that the detection of life on an exoplanet will happen in my lifetime." He added: "To be clear, the detection of life on another planet will not necessarily mean an alien civilisation exists on another planet, nor that we are about to have some form of communication with such lifeforms." https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/techandscience/professor-believes-that-aliens-will-be-discovered-in-the-next-20-years/ar-AA19mUjS? "The evidence of the discovery of life will probably be found by observing imbalances in ratios of chemical species (ozone and carbon dioxide, for example), which would not otherwise naturally exist without possibly some form of biological activity driving this disequilibrium." He adds: "And make no mistake, Nasa and numerous academic colleagues are taking the study of life on other planets very seriously." https://www.unilad.com/news/sasha-hinkley-find-alien-life-20-years-323628-20230401 4 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
