    I think the more relevant question is what do they taste like?

    Get your priorities straight, man.

    You forgot to ask whether they have coffee.

    Strange that astronomers are fired up about looking for life around the galaxy. There is plenty of it around here.

    LOL. Well, we'd have to build an 'Ascension' like spacecraft and bundle them all in there. Come to think of it, a splendid idea!
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    Given our lingering colonial values, I hope we don't find ET anytime soon, unless they are equal to or greater than us. Humans are not mature enough as a species to treat other life with respect and care.

    Every reason to believe it. Just as much as here.

    As the article says, the conditions exist that life here on Earth could have developed so there's every chance that life did so on those. If you observe life on Earth, life has developed, against all odds in and with amazing adaptations, in every single extreme environment that exists, except a vacuum.

    If you say so. I'll stick to reality.

    You do not know the reality. Neither do I.
