>Extraterrestrial Life Is Likely Rare, Scientist Says

<snip>

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.

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
