While planets with sustainable environments may exist, that may not mean alien life also exists, says Charles Cockell, director of the U.K. Center for Astrobiology at the University of Edinburgh. "It is dangerous to assume life is common across the universe. It encourages people to think that not finding signs of life is a 'failure,' when in fact it would tell us a lot about the origins of life," he said. http://www.space.com/20170-giant-radio-telescope-alma-exoplanets.html Scientists Expect Powerful Telescope To Unveil More On Alien Planets Though the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array, dubbed the world's most powerful radio telescope, hasn't officially been introduced to the world, it's already begun to help researchers learn more about the alien planets that surround us. Scientists are still adding additional antennas to the array, but even without full completion, the telescope has captured narrow dust rings around a brown dwarf and helped measure planets around the star Fomalhaut. Scientists expect ALMA at full power to have "a view of the universe that we can't even imagine even now", said Wolfgang Wild, a project manager with ALMA.
