The dude talking to himself in the Subway station has been mumbling this for years and just because he was drooling down his chin, we all turned a deaf ear to it.
Now that NASA’s smartest person claims that humanity is on the cusp of finding aliens by 2025, we’re wishing we gave that Subway dude a handkerchief or something for the hot tip.
NASA chief scientist Ellen Stofan said yesterday during a panel discussion,
“I think we’re going to have strong indications of life beyond Earth within a decade, and I think we’re going to have definitive evidence within 20 to 30 years.”
“In most cases we have the technology, and we’re on a path to implementing it. And so I think we’re definitely on the road.”
Others on the panel reiterated Stofan’s statements.
Jeffrey Newmark, NASAs interim director of heliophysics claims, “It’s not a matter of if, it’s a when.”
The scientists do say, however, that the aliens won’t be the green slimy men that pop culture portrays them to be, but rather small microbes. Regardless, do the microbes like to party? I’m looking to check ‘Get Fucked Up With An Alien’ off my bucket list.
So many unanswered questions here. Do aliens have hopes? Dreams? Nipples?
The universe baffles me.
