[quote:darkwolf007:MV8yMTA4NzMzXzM1NTQ2MzM1X0REREQ3QzA5] [quote:Anonymous Coward 31991224:MV8yMTA4NzMzXzM1NTQ2MjMxX0RCNzJEMjI3] The operational phrase here is "may be". WOW, it that's even possible, let's give NASA one trillion a year, or let's borrow a trillion from China, and give it to NASA, to investigate. NASA should be THE FIRST useless agency shut down. [/quote] From what I've researched about NASA over the years, in order to restore credibility in NASA and make NASA worthwhile of a worthy Department of the U.S. Government would be to get rid of the current useless suits controlling shit there. I don't doubt one second that many of the employees working there are very good people doing their best to make sure they help to fulfill the dreams of a dying nation. The second thing would be actually give NASA an actual budget and to restore what Obama gutted the hell out of NASA in the first place. Seeing as it's already proven time and time again that the highest levels of NASA are in regular/near constant contact with various alien life forms we actually make them publically known and start to be publically friendly with them instead of behind closed doors and in secret as if their very existences are some deep dark secret that only a select few "elite" are deserving to know. Fuck them and everyone like them! Everyone else deserves to have a chance to be friendly with one or more alien species, and to quit being so goddamn xenophobic because Hollywood has seemingly permanently instilled it in EVERYONE'S heads that it's considered right to be hateful, xenophobic, and just plain evil to everyone and everyone that's not Human.

17 billion planets in our Galaxy .... and I thought we had only 8 LOL
I had to learn the 8 planets when I was in elementary school ... I hope the kids have to learn the 17 billion planets now :)
Enough planets exist in the Milky Way to ensure that there is at least one for each of the hundred million stars in the galaxy, NASA has revealed.
Analysis of data from the Kepler space telescope shows that 17 billion planets in the galaxy are Earth-like in size.
The findings are making scientists increasingly confident of finding a rocky planet the same size as Earth, with a similar orbit and situated in the 'habitable zone' of a solar system.
