Viewpoints Industry has read recent comments from the Earth-bound scientific community that say there is a high likelihood of our confirming the existence of extraterrestrial life within the next 20 years. It is now commonly accepted that there are over a trillion planets in our own galaxy alone. A number of them are being identified as potential candidates for life as we understand it because they orbit their stars in a range often referred to as the "Goldilocks Zone" -- not too close, not too far; not too hot, not too cold. Many of these worlds have been identified as good prospects because of the detected presence of oxygen and/or methane in their atmospheres. These elements are byproducts of living organisms here on Earth, so the assumption is that they would come from a similar source on another world. At this stage of the search for life elsewhere in the galaxy, we are concentrating on the types of creatures that we would recognize as being similar to those found here on our own home world.
Viewpoints Industry notes that the scientific community shares a consensus that we are not alone in the universe.
The Viewpoints Industry TV show has noted that tiny clues are emerging that our Earthly leaders may have been briefed about some kind of contact with extraterrestrial life which is soon to occur, if it has not already happened decades ago. The number of television documentaries on ETs one can find on the air has mushroomed. Government-issued procedural manuals have been found that include provisions for interaction with non-human visitors. Even the church is releasing policy statements that are trying to save face should the truth about extraterrestrials be released to the public. During the next decade or two, it should be interesting to watch the skies, as well as the headlines.
