    I read that as well.

    You can also see UFO's or aliens depicted in a lot of ancient religious paintings and artifacts have been found which seem to show that flying saucers and "little green men" weren't unknown!

    I find it a fascinating subject!

    I think the aborigines have always believed in UFO's

    The trouble is, because of the vast distances, it's difficult to detect other lifeforms.

    Civilisations can rise and fall in a fraction of the time it would take for anyone to come calling from one of them. So it's very unlikely, unless something happens very close, that we will ever experience first contact.

    Yes, and the time they get any radio signals from us, we will have killed our planet and no one will be here.

    Maybe no one, but there will be life here when we're gone.

    I heard this on the radio this morning but they were making it out to be some conspiracy and laughing about it. So never got the full story. This is so exicting and I'd like to know more about it.

    Okay I've done some fag-packet calculations.

    1,500,000,000 light years is 460,122,699 parsecs.

    So if the Millennium Falcon did the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs, coming to Earth would take it the equivalent of 38,000,000 Kessel Runs.

    Hang on a minute, a parsec is a unit of distance, not time. So how could the Millennium Falcon do the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs? It must have BEEN 12 parsecs long!

    Damn you Han Solo. I always liked you but you've totally messed up my sums! :Rage

    Or maybe tow a black hole along so they can use the effect of slowing down time to make the distance seem shorter?

    Or maybe they've found the Tesla car, Elon Musk sent into space and are travelling back to earth in that?
