Extraterrestrial Life Is Likely Rare, Scientist Says

Alien life could be more difficult to find than some may think,
according to a theory presented at a conference sponsored by the
Royal Society. 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.


Scientists Expect Powerful Telescope To Unveil More On Alien

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. Space.com
