Are we alone? Yup that’s right, this post is going to be two things:
1) Hugely nerdy in a spacey-wacey, timey-wimey kinda way 2) Very long. Like really long. If you are really into reading University Physics essays then grab a cuppa and a bit of cake and pull up a comfy seat. If you’re not, then maybe come back tomorrow when I might be putting up some pictures of my lunch or something.
“Space [...] is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly hugely midbogglingly big it is. I mean you may thing it’s a long way down the road to the chemist, but that’s just peanuts to space” and because of this, the questions have always been asked; are we alone? Are there other forms of life? Do they look like E.T? Do they have their own version of Big Brother? In this essay I will look at some of the ideas surrounding the discussions and projects relating to the search for extra-terrestrial life, methods used to find them and the consequences that their discovery might have on our existence.
