What will we find?????
December 5, 2013
My vision of exploring exoplanets is that we won't really know what we find because we will rely too much on our own experiences. There may be something alive there that we totally diregard because it is nothing like us. We need to work on universal definitions of life, time, etc. before we can totally understand what we are looking for. It mey hurt the human ego, but it needs to be done.
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
