Haven't we already scoped planets with plants and **** on?

It's scary to think about being all alone in the universe, but it's also scary thinking what monstrosities are out there.

I know 100% we're not gonna find some tall, big eyed, green skinned aliens out there with UFOs like we so hope, but we're gonna find some weird life out there.

What we're probably gonna find it a planet the size of Jupiter that is hope to nothing but giant, slug-like creatures that can grow up to 50 miles long.

I for one am looking forward to discovering life on other planets... shame I won't live long enough to be among those to first see them up close.

It always annoys me when they talk about finding evidence of water on another plant, like water makes life on another planet any more likely than ammonia or hydrogen. True, the vast majority of life on earth- complex life especially- depends upon water.   
   
However, that happened once, here, on a world with a 						****					 ton of water. And there are plenty of other evolutionary routes life on Earth could have taken. The odds of life arising somewhere else are pretty good, given how many other planets there are in the universe, but the odds of that life relying on water are astronomical.    
   
Scientists have talked about alternative biochemistries- for example, ammonia, methane, hydrogen flouride, methanol, and nitrogen have all been discussed as alternatives to water. They can serve the same purpose for alien life that water serves for us. But even that is limiting. To assume that alien life would be anything like us, that it would require a solvent in the same way we do, is arrogant.   
   
If we find life on another planet, it will be more strange and bizarre than anything we can imagine. We will find abstract anatomies powered by absurd chemistries, built upon methane and titanium oxide. Strange shapes, with or without limbs, or eyes, or organs, or skeletons, or anything we'd recognize. Formless creatures navigating seas of liquid nitrogen using radio waves to see. Odds are, we won't even realize it's alive when we first stumble upon it.   
   
TL;DR, science is 						*******					 rad, and nothing we can imagine will be stranger than real alien life.

"Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.”
-Arthur C. Clarke
that generally summarize my feelings on aliens and extraterrestrial life.

No one is gonna believe me but I truly know we are not alone .

It would be stupid to believe we were.

How ******* can they make that claim?

I think there is a bit of confusion, it's within the next 20-30 years we will be able to detect if there is simple life in our solar system and then we can theorize off of that whether or not we are alone.

I think we have already found aliens.
I don't usually give two thoughts about conspiracies but aliens make more sense to me than not

I don't want aliens to make contact just yet. The majority of humans suck ass and I'll be damned if I become an alien stereotype because some jackass invented that whole Challenge BS.

I bet aliens are keeping their distance from us...

wow, nasa also can see future

Hopefully the first alien race we come in contact with won't be a ******* 2 billion years old God-Spawn of Chtulhu.

I personally feel like a lot of people are having a hard time believing that there are no other life forms in existence because they assume that their bodies will be a similar format to ours, but with the universe being so huge, that leaves a huge amount of possibilities. So what if the reason many people don't believe/haven't seen extra-terrestrials is because if by chance they did, they were so different from what we would expect that they didn't notice.

"World War III itself ultimately lasted from 2026 through 2053, and resulted in the death of some 600 million Humans. By that time, many of the planet's major cities and governments had been destroyed."
-star trek wikia on WW3.
if i remember correctly First Contact was made 6 years after WW3 ended.
so according to NASA First Contact will occur around 2034, while star trek says it's a full 25 years after that

Yea, we kinda figured out the "not alone" part in the 60's with hundreds of alien abductions and numerous UFO sightings above cities with hundreds of witnesses
ayy lmao

there is a difference between science and speculation. i feel like a massive amount of speculation ends up here on FJ
