IBG President Mr. Vikash Mittersain’s upcoming Book “MY POSTS ON FACEBOOK” post
August 01, 2015
Yuri Milner & Stephen Hawking. Yuri, the billionaire investor in Facebook, Twitter, etc has announced $ 100 million to assist the search for ET (Extra Terrestrials) and Aliens and Alien worlds across the universe. It’s a great step in the right direction. Though SETI, (search for extra-terrestrial intelligence) has been trying since last 3 decades, but with simply no squeak from any world. In reality humanity is still at the cave ages as far as this science goes. We are hardly able to probe beyond our own solar system as of now. There are millions of such in our own Milky Way Galaxy and then billions of such Galaxies. I think we are hundreds if not thousands of years away to come across any other intelligent forms. At the same time I am sure God did not create this entire unfathomable, unending and unreachable Universe only for Earthlings. There has to be a greater design in His scheme of things.
Have no update on the subject.
I expect we will need another 100 years till we Earthlings get to connect with an Alien race, and it will need several leaps of technology to achieve this.
Me being 60 years old already, I will not be around to see this exciting time that will be for humanity.
And as Stephen Hawking said, dangerous too.
