NASA predicts alien life discovery soon

Chief scientist Ellen Stofan stated that we are likely to find evidence of alien life within 20 years.
Her comments came during a public panel in Washington D.C on Thursday in which NASA scientists had been discussing the likelihood that mankind will discover conclusive evidence of microbial alien life in the near future.

"I believe we are going to have strong indications of life beyond Earth in the next decade and definitive evidence in the next 10 to 20 years," Stofan said during the event.

The optimistic prediction is based on the recent discovery that oceans of liquid water might exist, not only on Jupiter's moon Europa, but also on Ganymede and Saturn's moon Enceladus.
"We now recognize that habitable zones are not just around stars, they can be around giant planets too," said Jim Green, NASA's director of planetary science.

"We are finding out the solar system is really a soggy place."

The confirmed discovery of extraterrestrial life would undoubtedly constitute one of the greatest, if not the greatest, scientific finds in human history.

"It's definitely not an if, it's a when," the panel concluded.

http://www.luogocomune.net/site/modules/newbb/print.php?form=2&forum=54&topic_id=4979&post_id=138087 I find many links in Italian that speak of the sphenoid and the documents that confirm the anomaly. if using eighth notes can have the English translation on the screen.

I can't read Italian but find it astounding that this professor, who doesn't show up when I type his name into that linked web site, has discovered something that no investigator in the US has found. Anyways I googled sphenoid bone fractures on abductees and got this page https://www.alien-uf...lant-you-2.html and this one https://www.alien-uf...-methods-2.html You wouldn't be the growl from that site would you? Nothing wrong with that site. I'm a member of both. Use Google translate when going to sites with other languages.

Well sure, but even if we did bring microbial life to Mars, that's pretty phenomenal that they can survive without help or special enclosures. That's probably a more relevant discovery, in fact. Regardless, people claiming that we brought microbes with us would have to prove the claim, it wouldn't need to be necessarily disproven. Burden of proof is in the one making the statement, after all. Scientists have discovered microbial life on Earth that can survive the most extreme. Sulfur based, microbes in deep sea near vents etc...

I think life can survive by adapting to the harshest conditions but for life to start it might require very very precise nearly perfect conditions. Beginning of life might be just a fluke ( perfect conditions just happened for some very short time) . So we might be actually alone.
