A decade is only 10 years. It is highly unlikely that even microbial life of extraterrestrial origin will be identified by 2028. Our best chance of finding life comes from two realms. Within our own solar system on the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, and from space from the SETI program (Search for extraterrestrial intelligence),... Continue Reading →
I know a lot of aliens, but most of them are from Earth and some people want them deported. I don’t know any advanced aliens from other planets, but we might have contact with extraterrestrial life in the form of cosmic dust that comes from micrometeorites that enter our atmosphere from space and drift down...

The closest aliens somewhere out there are likely to be way technologically behind us, not ahead of us, because they are likely to be bacteria. You see, when you say “aliens” you probably mean “intelligent aliens” but then that could include critters similar to whales, dogs or pigs, for if we found creatures of any... Continue Reading →
Well, the question would be better for me if you had asked “If I had to make a choice, would you rather live on Mars or Venus?” Because quite frankly, living on either planet is not a good idea. However, of the two, Mars is better because Venus is too hot and rains sulfuric acid... Continue Reading →
Why? You want to do it? The first thing is to go there, and probably outside our solar system because we’ve pretty much claimed everything here already. Next, plop down your own flag and hope someone more powerful than you doesn’t show up after you.
Aliens have a dual definition: the people Trump wants out of the USA and the people from outer space. Since people from outer space are called aliens, then it matters not whether they are from Mars or somewhere else. They are aliens. Therefore, "alien", "Martian" and "extraterrestrial" are synonymous, except not all aliens come from... Continue Reading →
I’m going to die anyway. What’s a few years? I’d want to see what the aliens looked like and I’d like to ask how they managed to go faster than the speed of light to get here just to conquer this miserable, little planet.
Oh I don’t know. It’s a lot further than I usually go to visit exotic places. There’s no breathable air. There’s no suitable soil to grow anything. I’m an outdoor kind of person, but you just can’t go out on Mars without a spacesuit. There’s dangerous solar radiation bombarding the place. NASA has established that... Continue Reading →
Let’s revisit Sir Isaac Newton’s cannon. In the above mentioned article we had placed a level on the cannon and shot the cannonball at 1440 feet per second parallel to the ground until it fell and bounced and rolled and came to a stop. We didn’t want to shoot it up in the air in a... Continue Reading →
