in reply to Do you really want to know if there is extraterrestrial life?

It's statistically almost a certainty that there is life elsewhere in the universe. Intelligent life is pretty probable too. However, because of the vast distances involved, making contact with any life outside our solar system seems pretty unlikely; and finding any life more complex than single cells inside our solar system equally so.

    I totally agree with tobyink

    So I dont want to know if there is extraterrestrial life out of there, because I already know. So I voted No

    Universe is too big and big numbers are fun: impossible to state that Earth is an unicum (well probably is, but in another sense and we must conserve it as well as we can, instead of depredate it..).

    I want just to add a little concept: lithopanspermia.
