The chief astronomer of SETI has claimed that mankind will make contact with an intelligent alien race within 20 years. NASA's Kepler space telescope will scan over 100,000 stars in search of habitable planets.
Some leading astronomers are quite confident that mankind will make contact with intelligent alien life within two decades. The search for extraterrestrial life will leap forward next year when NASA launches the Kepler space telescope. The instrument will be constantly scanning the same 100,000 stars over its four-year mission with the exciting objective of discovering Earth-sized planets in the habitable zones around suns. "
