The 6 Most Likely Places To Find Alien Life
by Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer, SETI Institute

Let's be upfront about this: We still don't have hard-nosed
evidence for any life that's not of this Earth. That fact hasn't
changed since the time of Aristotle.

But unlike that gifted Greek, a lot of folks today think proof
of alien biology could grace the next news cycle. After all,
astronomers have recently uncovered thousands of new planets;
space agencies have relentlessly hurled hardware at dozens of
solar system targets; and SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial
Intelligence) scientists continue to build new equipment for
tuning in ET's radio chatter.

Research budgets may be low, but expectations are high. Among
the long list of locales where we might uncover life-as-we-
don't-know-it, which are my favorites? In other words, where do
I think we'll first find bits of self-organized chemistry that
would forever =96 forever =96 be Exhibit A in our argument that life
is a cosmic infection, rather than something extraordinarily
rare or even unique?

Listed below are my top six picks for your consideration and
possible contention
