We will find alien life in 20 years
– but it'll probably be outside our solar system, claims Nasa
- Nasa predicts that 100 million worlds in our galaxy can host alien life
- During a talk yesterday in Washington, the space agency outlined a roadmap to search for alien life using current and future telescopes
- It will launch of the Transiting Exoplanet Surveying Satellite in 2017
- This will be followed by the James Webb Space Telescope in 2018
- 'Astronomers think it is very likely that every single star in our Milky Way galaxy has at least one planet,' said MIT professor, Sara Seager

One hundred million worlds in our galaxy are able to host alien life, according to a ‘conservative’ prediction by Nasa.
And the space agency claims that we will be able to find that life within the next 20 years, with a high chance it will be outside our solar system.
During a public talk yesterday in Washington, the space agency outlined a roadmap to search for life in the universe using a number of current and future telescopes.
'I would venture to say that most of my colleagues here today say it is improbable that in the limitless vastness of the universe we humans stand alone,' said former astronaut and Nasa Administrator Charles Bolden (pictured)
'Do we believe there is life beyond Earth?' said former astronaut and Nasa Administrator Charles Bolden.
'I would venture to say that most of my colleagues here today say it is improbable that in the limitless vastness of the universe we humans stand alone.'
Mars and a number of moons in our solar system have been the focus of the search for alien life for decades.
It would be naive of us to think that God only has one earth planet in this vast universe which seems to have no end. The more man looks to see the more he finds and there is obviously lots more out there yet. God has a plan for this earth and for mankind, do you know what it is?
