“I say: With Kepler or without, it's only a matter of time until we find signs of life on other worlds."


We already have.
And what have told us here on Earth?

Love one another,
Choose the Right,
Help each other,
Be kind and nice,

The problem is,
They know us, and communicae with us --
But the Prime Directive [non-interference] doesn't allow them to be free and open about them being among us until we reach a level of Humanity of Peace and Harmony.

I.e., We're screwing up our own planet, they certainly don't want us scrwing up anymore until we can behave.
At least becoming a Terresial Level planet.

The Kepler mission has identified thousands of stars that show signs of having one or more planets in orbit around them. A meaningful fraction of those are Earth-sized planets in habitable orbits around stable stars.

Kepler data will keep researchers busy for a decade and will guide follow-on observations of these candidate worlds. That's a happy thought.

I feel sorry for someone looking for intelligent life on this planet and coming across AM Talk radio, Fox news, E! or Dancing with the stars.
