Astronomer: E.T. could be found within the next 24 years

Humans will find signs of extraterrestrial life within the next 24 years if current science developments and research breakthroughs continue, according to senior astronomer Dr. Seth Shostak. Shostak leads the Center for SETI Research in Mountain View, California, and recently spoke to students at Deer Valley High School about the current hunt for aliens in outer space.




"If there are at least a few thousands of those 100-billion star systems out there - a few thousand that have some society that's broadcasting signals that are reaching us today - then we're going to find E.T> within two dozen years."


Researchers will directly find life nearby, discover microscopic life, or end up finding evidence of intelligence life somewhere in space.
