Does ET really exist ?

so do u think that there is life out there apart from on earth. ? will we get a visit from ET one day ?

Scientists seem to be always finding new planets, moons and solar systems and even galaxys it seems every month.

    There has got to be another form of existence in my opinion. I get freaked out when I think of infinity

    If we are the only/most advanced life in this universe then God help us (and it).

    The Earth is a baby relative to the millions of other systems/planets out there. It happened here so I'd say it's likely to happen elsewhere.

    On a lower gravity planet you could be pressing 100s of K

    no you couldn't, cos it wouldn't weigh 100s of K if u put it on a scales.

    There is definately something else out there,there have been so many ancient drawings found depicting UFOs etc,I cant believe at that time they would have had the imagination to think things like that up,maybe if the drew dragons etc then yes but not mechanical flying objects with aliens.
    For us to be the only life forms with any real savvy in the entire universe doesnt add up to me.

    The chances of intellegent life exisitng far outweighs the chances of life not existing.

    the universe is so vast that they probably dont know where here - the radio waves we have been sending out for the last 100 years or so probably hasnt even left our corner of the milky way, let alone reached a galaxy far far away

    we are talking big numbers here, the number of stars in our galaxy is easily the number of galaxys in the universe .....

    What do you mean? Humans are amazing. The idea that simple atoms could bond together and over millions of years evolve to something that has awareness of itself is just mind-blowing to me!

    Actually yes you could. It's MASS would still be 100kg. However it's WEIGHT would be much less due to the lower gravity. (Pedantic aren't I?!)

    Most scientists agree that there surely must be other life forms given the sheer number of galaxies out there. How intelligent they are is anybody's guess.

    I firmly believe there is life on other planets. I doubt we (humans) will ever come into direct contact with them. There is a formula for calculating the chance that life exists on other planets, Drakes equation: N = (N*)(Fp)(ne)(Fl)(Fi)(Fc)(L) N = chances of life existing, N*=No of stars in galaxy, Fp = % of stars with planets, ne = the enviromental factor, Fl = fraction of planets with life, Fi = fraction of planets with intelligent life, Fc = Fraction with radio comms capabilities, L = longetivity (length of time a civilisation will exist before it destroys itself). This subject really interests me, there are plenty of books on it.

    You're right - life is amazing. Without wishing to turn it political or racial or anything like that, whilst capable of amazing things humans have serious flaws just now - I'm referring not just to bombs but our general capacity to destroy and inflict harm.

    I just think there is a lot of room for improvement - that's all .

    how would it's mass be 100kg, cos u would have had to have brought it to earth to weigh it in the first place to find out that it's mass is 100kg.

    HMMMMMM........i wonder how long it will be before we wreck our planet to the point we all die.......I wonder if we will manage to colonise another planet before we destroy this one?
    I seriously doubt it the way things are going!
    I wonder if its gonna be one of those situations u see in films with a few survivors forming gangs in a post nuclear desert type scenario with anarchy prevailing??
    I wonder if we are just a little science experiment perfomed by a higher lifeform?
    Maybe even though we think we are clever etc, we are just little bacteria type things that some huge life form is studying a bit like we study bacteria!
    We might be little germs living on an enormous turd or something!

    Because it is relative to the acceleration due to gravity. Mass doesn't change (unless something is added to/taken away from it), however weight as a function does change with respect to the gravity. The astronauts walking on the moon had the same mass as on earth but their weight changed due to gravity on the moon.

    There's no aliens, when you die that's it, there will never be world peace and Yuri Gehler is just a 2nd rate magician.

    But if it makes your life better for believing it, then that's fine.

    of course there is life in places other than earth. it's so amazing when you try to imagine just how big the universe is. i wonder if there is a parallel universe where i'm really a famous rock star?
