Well, with the GOP heading up the House committees, it will certainly blow their minds because in their world, Earth's only 5000 years old. Somebody will have some explaining to

all this fascination with alien life - if we can't communicate with other species on this planet (let alone each other!) how do we imagine we'll have any idea about aliens? it's not star trek out there you know!

I've been into sci-fi since the 1950s so the possibility of finding extra-terrestial life is fascinating. BUT I have some reservations because we tend to treat other species on our own planet shamefully.

The title is "We have the technology to find alien life, scientists tell Congress' and the first line of the article is "While some of these tools already exist, astrobiologists asked the U.S. Congress on Wednesday to invest in the next chapter of the search for life beyond Earth." ?

Forget "alien" life..... let us learn to cherish all life here on earth first and "invest" in our own future .

Interesting article. I believe life exists in many forms in the Universe, even intelligent forms of life.

Just look at congress..aliens ARE there! The question should be looking for INTELLIGENT life...and for that you have to look outside of congress.

The terrestrial beings are already aliens in relation to each other, across cultural and social boundaries.
They say the extra-terrestrial are smarter than us ... I believe it.
