I am most interested in two things: finding another planet that we can exist on, and finding life. I am aware that neither of these two events may happen in my life time but after taking ASTR 201 at Vanderbilt I am very excited to read about the advances that our world makes in these two areas. We have already found places that life could exist or maybe has existed within our universe, just not the life that we all hoped for. It blows my mind that a moon of another planet, such as Titan, could possibly have microscopic life below the surface or living in the methane lakes and water there. I think that after we have found planets that could be home to life, we are then going to have to start looking at moons and have a Star Wars- like approach to this, where anywhere can be home to life and that some moons can definitely be places were living creatures exist. Hopefully there will be someone willing to give up a large portion of their life to travel to another place and try to establish a civilization on another planet.
In my previous blog posts I wrote about finding life on other planets in the universe and making contact with life on other planets and I think that there is not much more to do except wait, I am disappointed to say. We have put a lot out there and now we just have to see if there are any life forms waiting to receive the signal or if there are also civilizations looking to make contact as well. I think the UFO research is fascinating but in order to get answers to the questions about UFOs and other unexplained events that we have experienced over time we must make contact first. Then belief in these subjects will be spurred and we can make more headway because more people will be supportive and interested in the topic. I will always be looking for updates on our quest to find life on other planets and maybe it will be someone from this course that makes that first contact. Who knows. I found this website about alien abductions that explain what is going on with a person after they have possibly been abducted and maybe this has already happened to some of us we just have no idea.
What do you think of when you hear the word alien? What do you think they look like? I immediately think of this movie:
and I think, they probably look just like us..at least on the outside.
