Blimey.

Given this, what would one consider the likelihood of earth sustaining the only life in our galaxy? I'd say pretty much zero?

To imagine that this place is the only harbour of life would be the ultimate act of hubris.

Perhaps very close, too. My money's on Europa turning up trumps. How terrific would that be?!

The interesting part would be discerning life other than carbon based. Methane mammoths would be a stretch but is provided as an example.

I like the idea of other types of life in the solar system. That could lead to issues though I seem to remember a lot of science fiction deals with this.

In astronomy news locally looks like I will miss the super moon due to rain

There was quite a big light show here last night. The thunder was very loud also.

Thanks to an international co-op, the first photographic evidence of a quantum singularity!

Watched the announcement. Pretty incredible! Too bad Hawkings passed away before it happened.

Fascinating information and pictures. Surprising that we can see it.

This reminds me of an article some years back. An MLB umpire made a call and the batter questioned his eye sight. The umpire replied, "Nothing wrong with my eye sight. I can see the sun and it's 93 million miles away." Or something to that nature.

And it's 300 million trillion miles away. I mean... what the? What does that number even mean?!?!

It means that they probably won't overnight a tobacco order there.
