|Size chart of the solar system and selected stars|
The hubby and I love to watch "The Universe" series, and the girls are already hooked as well. There's so much yet to be learned and discovered. Do I think there is life out there? I definitely do. There are billions of stars, with their very own solar system just in our galaxy. And there are billions of galaxies out there; to me, it simply seems to be more likely that there is life somewhere out there than that we are unique there. Are thos life forms sentient? Maybe. Do they form civilizations like us? Possibly. Are they coming for us? Less likely, just taking the distances into account. It is physically not possible to achieve the speed of light, and it will take many, many generations of ingenious scientists to achieve speed close to light. And even then it would take still take years to reach the closest star in the Centauri system.
Enjoy the view!
