"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. <snip> Hi Diana, Think Cockell got his adjectives mixed up. While a misplaced belief in life being common might lead to disappointment at worst, an erroneous belief that it is rare might be truly dangerous. Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
