An 'armchair astronomer' named David Martines
has found something on Google Mars
which he believes is some kind of space station
. Allegedly, NASA is investigating
the image. Another theory
says that what he sees is a "linear streak artifact produced by a cosmic ray".
Many planets have been found circling other stars, but the prevailing search techniques turn up results encouraging but bizarre
. (encouraging, previously
) Gravitational micro-lensing has made it possible to OGLE
a solar system much like our own.... You're not alone.
The number of communicating alien civilizations = R* x fp x ne x fl x fi x fc x L
. The formula is the Drake Equation
, and modern estimates range from several thousand to none but us. You can solve it yourself
. What is your estimate of the number of alien civilizations out there?
We are not alone....
a new planet outside of our solar system was found today. It's only a matter of time before the little green men come down to greet us.
