Top U.S. Astronomers Tell Congress That Extraterrestrial Life Exists Without Question

Two top astronomers from the SETI Institute (Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence) recently appeared in front of the congressional House Science and Technology Committee for a hearing regarding the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. They told the committee that extraterrestrial life most certainly exists, without question, one of those scientists is Seth Shostak, a well-known senior scientist at the SETI Institute. They said that the chance of discovering life on other planets is inevitable and will most likely occur within the next 20 years.(1)(2)

Their main argument was the size of the universe, emphasizing that there are trillions of stars out there, with one in every five most likely harboring an Earth-like planet.

“In the last 50 years, evidence has steadily mounted that the components and conditions we believe necessary for life are common and perhaps ubiquitous in our galaxy. The possibility that life has arisen elsewhere, and perhaps evolved intelligence, is plausible and warrants scientific inquiry. If you extrapolate on the planets they discovered, there are a trillion planets in the galaxy. That’s a lot of places for life. We know the majority of stars have planets, but what fraction of stars have planets that are more like the earth? It might be one in five.”  – Dan Shostak

Scientists are discovering billions of Earth like planets on our Milky Way galaxy alone. I’d also like to mention that planets do not have to be Earth-like in order to harbor life, that’s just what we think and assume. Who knows what type of conditions life on other planets can thrive in? Or the biological make up of an extraterrestrial life form?

New York Politician Asks Astronomers about Extraterrestrials Already Visiting The Planet

Another topic brought up at the hearing was the topic of extraterrestrials, and if they are already visiting the planet. It was asked by U.S. Rep Chris Collins, a New York Republican.

You can view the full hearing HERE.

Chris: “I think I might ask the question everyone in this room wants to ask, have you watched ‘Ancient Aliens’ and what’s your comment about that series?” 

Shostak’s reply: “The public is fascinated with the idea that we may be being visited now, or may have been visited in the past, the so-called UFO phenomenon. I personally don’t share the conviction that we are being visited. I don’t think that that would be something that all the governments of the world had managed to obfuscate – to keep secret. I don’t believe that. .. The idea that maybe we were visited during the time of the ancient Egyptians and so forth, keep in mind that in the 4.5 billion year history of the Earth, the time of the ancient Egyptians was yesterday. So again, why were they there then? What was it that brought them to Earth? I have no idea and I don’t find very good evidence.”

In this interview, Shostak said he is aware of the witness testimony, but the fact remains that there is no scientific evidence, something he can touch, feel and examine, and that most of the scientists he knows feel the same way.
