Scientists argue "early Armageddon" snuffs out alien life before it has a chance to evolve.
In an interview for Business Insider, astronomer and former director of the Center for SETI Research Jill Tarter, responded to Stephen Hawking's concerns about Active SETI, or sending messages to possible extraterrestrial civilizations rather than simply waiting and listening for signals from said intelligent aliens.
Only the interactions with politicians and funding agencies is disappointing. The discoveries in the realms of exoplanets
Our earliest astronauts were test pilots; their selection followed strict criteria of age, gender, and flight experience that severely limited participation. Are we in danger of creating another exclusive group of spacefarers?
I'd welcome an alien in my church pew any Sunday, as an astrobiologist who is also a pastor. However, none have shown up as yet.
We have no answer to the Fermi Paradox—the best we can do is “possible explanations.” And if you ask ten different scientists
Aliens almost definitely exist. “The chances of finding it I think are good and if that happens it will happen in the next
A team of astronomers, after carefully combing data from NASA's Kepler space telescope, has finally nailed a world that might be similar to our own. But is it inhabited? Finding the answer is not easy.
The SETI Institute sponsored an online poll called Pluto Rocks to come up with better monikers for the two natural satellites
It's official! Two tiny moons orbiting the dwarf planet Pluto finally have new names: Styx and Kerberos. This image, taken
It seems that the frequency of planets able to support life is roughly one percent. In other words, a billion or more such worlds exist in our galaxy alone. That's a lot of acreage, and it takes industrial-strength credulity to believe it's all bleakly barren.
Broadcast signals that emanate on Earth theoretically travel on a never-ending path across space. A technology-savvy civilization

2013-01-18-TEDplayvideoCould it be that the sound from a planetary body is a collective yearning of extraterrestrial intelligence living on such a body, and would it mean that we have to isolate each 'component' sound from its totality to effectively 'understand' what an extraterrestrial being is saying?
"In particular, we can offer no argument that an advanced, intelligent civilization necessarily produces narrow-band radio
It's time for some new predictions! Anything could happen in 2013. Who knows? Maybe the SETI project's radio telescopes will receive an alien transmission and pinpoint the source to that UFO hovering over Donald Trump's head.
The question of whether extraterrestrial life exists (and in particular "intelligent" ET life) is arguably one of the most intriguing questions today. The discovery of ET life would constitute a revolution rivaling the Copernican revolution in magnitude. Here is a brief status report.
