    If there's even a microbe, it's a huge deal.
    But my guess is, we'll find that here in our backyard

    Over all of my years of interest in physics, philosophy, astronomy, art and knowledge in general, I am always lead to the thought that our universe is a machine for creating life. That may be just a bio-centric view of things, but it is the only one that allows for the universe to reflect upon itself. I mean have we seen anything in the universe that has the complexity and power of the mind? No. Consciousness is the most sophisticated expression that we have observed in the universe thus far. Just seems the natural conclusion that there should be trillions of biological variants, whether carbon based, silicon, or other life forms in the universe.

    I am certain we will find life elsewhere. Even if we are to play the improbable odds that gave earth life, the universe is so big as to make it inevitable that it does, or will exist elsewhere.

    I stop short of speaking about finding "intelligent" life, but life, I'm hardly going to be shocked if we find something alien locally .
    I would be shocked to hear ,say ,the Big G at the Gates tell me, "Yep, I made all of it, and only put life in one place. The rest was window dressing that got out of hand."

    We will have to fit god into the equation somehow for the lower life forms.

    Yep. The work they do, and discoveries they make are pretty significant if you aren't retarded. I mean, an insect wouldn't care if we showed it a cell phone. That doesn't mean the cell phone is insignificant.

    Kind of cool to think that once we get the JWT launched -- we could have discoveries like this monthly.

    Exactly, we live in exciting times and i think we are in for some cool discoveries in a rapid pace in our lifetime

    for anyone interested @JudoThrowFiasco is refering to JWT that is the James Webb Space Telescope

    What is the JWT?
    This telescope will launch in 2018 for a 5-10 year mission consisting of exploring the indications of the origins of the universe, exoplanets, orbits among other things, it has a mirror 6 times bigger than the hubble and alot more powerful.

    official site is this: jwst.nasa.gov

    On top of this -- for any engineering aficionados out there -- one of the really interesting points is that the JWT will not be in LEO or even in GSO but will be launched 1.5 million kilometers away and settle in the second Lagrange / L2 point. It will have a mirror assembly about 6x the size of the hubble with an aperture 3x as large. That being said, because it is going to be settling so far away from Earth, that it will have to be launched in tact and survive the journey and 3 different rocket stages. Think about carrying several boxes of fine china down a few dozen flight of stairs. Currently, it is going through stress test and just passed its 3rd round -- you can actually watch a live feed of the assembly and testing process at the link @JaegerIT provided.


    Once in place though -- this bad boy ass will be able to detect the date on a penny from about 26 miles away and be able to map waterways and patterns on exoplanets. Down fall, it realistically will only be useful for 5-10 years.

    I'm commenting on the stupid newspaper reports along the lines of "Will NASA announce they've found alien life in 2 hours" and of course the answer is no.
