Experts reveal the possibility of discovering aliens in 2020
For decades, many have always wondered about the possibility of life beyond Earth. Now, leading experts say that there is a big chance that we may discover aliens next year.
Given the many incidents or unsolved mysteries regarding the presence of aliens or extra-terrestrial beings on Earth, scientists have weighed in on their opinions regarding the matter for years. But, with the discoveries made in recent times may actually bring us closer to the answer of this long-running question.
Due to having discovered exoplanets beyond our galaxy, as well as evidence of the presence of water on Mars and the fact that there are moons in our solar system that can be livable, scientists believe that the possibility of discovering aliens is looming. To be exact, we might discover aliens as early as 2020 or 2021.
According to Messaging Extra-terrestrial Intelligence president Douglas Vakoch, just by having 0.01 percent of the star systems are advanced life forms, there could potentially be millions of these life forms out there. With this in mind, Vakoch believes that humanity has yet to catch up on ways to find life beyond Earth. It all depends on how many aliens there are out there.
It bears noting that the components of life are made up of carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen, among many other elements. All of these elements are part of complex organic chemistry that is able to create life. After all, the tails of comets have been discovered to contain amino acids similar to those that make up the proteins in the human body. Other proteins have also been discovered on Mars.
There is also a discovery of a giant alcohol-based entity that is 6,500 light-years away. Scientists have also theorized that another Earth-like planet is also within our galaxy, in orbit around the nearest star, the Proxima Centauri, which is four light-years away from our planet. Knowing this, the possibility of discovering life forms beyond Earth is not as far off as we would initially think it would be.
The chances of there being extraterrestrial beings out there seem highly likely, inevitable almost.
