NASA scientists are now making the prediction that alien life will be discovered in the next 20 years. Scientists are discovering habitable planets within our planetary neighborhood at a staggering rate.
In 1930 when Pluto was discovered, it was considered an extremely unique discovery and a special feat for science. Less than a hundred years later we have found hundreds of thousands of exo-planets in other star systems.
As a member of NASA’s Goddard Institute For Space Studies, Anthony del Genio believes we could find it within our lifetime. “I think that in 20 years we will have found one candidate that might be it.” He said.
NASA scientists believe the planets most likely to possess life is Saturn’s icy moon Enceladus and Jupiter’s icy moon Europa.
A spaceship is being sent to Europa to see whether or not alien life is swimming in its giant frozen lakes.
