What are the chances of there being other advanced intelligent

 life-forms in the Universe, other than the human race??

 

 

 

 

 

  • - How much more evidence would be necessary to “let the cat out of the bag”?

  •  .

  • - How much more time do we need to be able to absorb this “New Reality”?

  •  .

  • - After the “Initial Shock” !!!! – Then what???

  •  .

  • - Is it only “fear” that prevents us from knowing and accepting a possible New Reality?

  •  .

  • - What is going to happen to each one of us once everything is known?

  •  .

  • -  Who would loose the majority, or all of their Power? – Government, Military, Religion, Sciences, Education, and above  all, the Economy?

  •  .

  • - Would there be anything that will not be affected?

  •  .

  • - What Knowledge or Advance Technologies would be available to us?

  •  .

  • -These are really big questions, which as of now, have no concrete Answers…

 

 

 

 

What is the estimated size of the Milky Way Galaxy?

 

The Milky Way is a barred spiral galaxy 100,000–120,000 light-years in diameter containing 200–400 billion stars. The Galaxy is estimated to contain at least as many planets, 10 billion of which could be located in the habitable zone of their parent star.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milky_Way

 

Astronomers estimate there are about 100 thousand million stars in the Milky Way alone.

Outside that, there are millions upon millions of other galaxies also!

 

 

 

 

 

How many Stars are there in a Galaxy?

 

a.)

About the number of stars: People have studied the mass distribution of stars in the galaxy. Further, one also knows the amount of light put out by each type of star. So, by measuring the total amount of light in the galaxy (called luminosity), and knowing the mass, one can estimate the number of stars that are there in the galaxy. So, even though we cannot actually count the number of stars in the galaxy, we can estimate the number of stars in the galaxy as roughly 100 billion (100,000,000,000). It turns out that there are many more stars with mass less than the mass of the Sun than with mass more than the mass of the Sun. So, it all works out right.

b.)

Our own Milky Way is a spiral galaxy. These are much more massive than the relatively tiny dwarf galaxies, and contain hundreds of billions of stars. For example, the Milky Way contains 200 billion stars – 200,000,000,000 stars. The nearby Andromeda galaxy is much more massive than the Milky Way and contains 1 trillion stars; 5 times as many stars as the Milky Way.

The largest galaxies in the Universe are known as ellipticals. These enormous galaxies have lost their spiral shape through many interactions between large galaxies. They’re found at the cores of the largest galaxy clusters. The biggest galaxy ever discovered is inside the Abell 2029 cluster and contains 100 trillion stars. That’s 100,000,000,000,000 stars.

And just think, there are 100 billion galaxies in the observable Universe. When you put those numbers together, you get an estimate of 1024 stars in the entire Universe. Or a 1 followed by 24 zeroes. That’s 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars.

Exo-Planets

 

 

 

 

How many Stars with habitable Planets “Extrasolar Planets”, and how many Planets could then be in a Galaxy?

 

  - The first Exoplanet at all were discovered in 1992.-

 

Extrasolar planets are planets that orbit stars other than our Sun. The first extrasolar planet discovered around a sunlike star was announced on October 6, 1995. Since then, astronomers have been discovering extrasolar planets at a dizzying rate, and the list of all the known extrasolar planets contains more than 500 new worlds!

 

 

 

 

 

 

How many Galaxies are there in the Universe?

 

For the Universe, the galaxies are our small representative volumes, and there are something like 1011 to 1012 stars in our galaxy, and there are perhaps something like 1011 or 1012 galaxies.

 

With this simple calculation you get something like 1022 to 1024 stars in the Universe. This is only a rough number, as obviously not all galaxies are the same, just like on a beach the depth of sand will not be the same in different places.

And, what is the estimated size of the Universe?

 

How big is the universe? Could it be infinitely large? If the universe has an edge, what is beyond the edge? And if the universe had a beginning, what was going on before that?

 

The Visible Universe

 

There is an edge to what we are able to see and could ever possibly see in the universe.

 

The most distant galaxies we can now see are 10 or 12 billion light-years away. We could never see a galaxy that is farther away in light travel time than the universe is old—an estimated 14 billion or so years. Thus, we are surrounded by a "horizon" that we cannot look beyond—a horizon set by the distance that light can travel over the age of the universe.

 

If this grand idea is correct, that by a process called "inflation, then the universe is larger than we ever could have imagined. But the question remains: Is there a boundary, and if so, what lies in the voids beyond?

 

The answer, according to some cosmologists, is truly mind-boggling. If the universe sprung forth in this manner, then probably inflation has occurred in other places, perhaps an infinite number of places, beyond our horizon and outside of our time. The implication is that there are other universes, perhaps similar to ours or vastly different, each in its own space and begun in its own time.

Size Of The Universe ( 3 mins)

 

Still think we are alone?


"OK so, lets do some math!


There is an estimated 500 billion galaxies in 1 Universe. Each Galaxy can have less or more then 100 Billion stars, each star has 50% chance as of now to have planets orbiting it.


Kepler telescope found estimated 500 million planets in 2 years that could hold life in one galaxy, plus we know about 1 that already does. So if 500 billion galaxies have 500 million planets out of which 1 hosts intelligent life we have about 500 BILLION CIVILIZATIONS in ONE Universe! Still think we are alone?

How many Universes are they?

 

Scientists find first evidence that many universes exist

The signatures of a bubble collision: A collision (top left) induces a temperature modulation in the CMB temperature map (top right). The “blob” associated with the collision is identified by a large needlet response (bottom left), and the presence of an edge is determined by a large response from the edge detection algorithm (bottom right).

(PhysOrg.com) -- By looking far out into space and observing what’s going on there, scientists have been led to theorize that it all started with a Big Bang, immediately followed by a brief period of super-accelerated expansion called inflation. Perhaps this was the beginning of everything, but lately a few scientists have been wondering if something could have come before that, setting up the initial conditions for the birth of our universe.

Victor J. Stenger 1: THERE ARE MANY UNIVERSES OUT THERE ( 5 mins)

 

When did time begin? Certainly our Universe began with Big Bang. All time IS is a clock. Big Bang occurred but drew from previous universe, through quantum tunneling from chaos/nothing. See Stenger's "The Comprehensible Cosmos" for scenario with math added. There are many universes out there! They are kind of expanding bubbles. Look for distortion in cosmic microwave background--when bubbles collide--to detect other universes.

How many Dimension could there be?

                                            

For most of us, or perhaps all of us, it's impossible to imagine a world consisting of more than three spatial dimensions. Are we correct when we intuit that such a world couldn't exist? Or is it that our brains are simply incapable of imagining additional dimensions—dimensions that may turn out to be as real as other things we can't detect?
String theorists are betting that extra dimensions do indeed exist; in fact, the equations that describe superstring theory require a universe with no fewer than 10 dimensions. But even physicists who spend all day thinking about extra spatial dimensions have a hard time describing what they might look like or how we apparently feeble-minded humans might approach an understanding of them. That's always been the case, and perhaps always will be.

Drake’s Equation, Estimating the Chances of Intelligent Extraterrestrial Life
 
The famous Drake Equation is an equation used by researchers to estimate the probability of intelligent life elsewhere in universe. The equation was first introduced by Frank Drake in the 1950s. It is a basic equation with a set of multiplicative factors tracking the various natural phenomena thought be to necessary to estimate the number of intelligent civilizations in the universe today. The answer is based on the product of five terms: the number of suitable stars, the number of suitable planets orbiting a suitable star, the probability of life developing on a suitable planet, the probability that life evolves to be intelligent and the typical lifetime of a civilization compared to the life time of its star.
 
Since the discovery of nearly 1,500 extrasolar planets the second term in this equation have been impacted the most with these numbers. With this new information lets explore this equation. We will estimate the probability of intelligent life in our Sun’s own neighborhood called the Local Bubble. There are about 30 million stars in this region. This is the number for the first factor in the equation.

 

For the second factor in the equation we must consider the number of Earth-like planets orbiting suitable stars. So far we have confirm the physical characteristics of about 431 extrasolar planets but have not found any of them to be quite Earth-like. The “Rare Earth” hypothesis states that Earth-like planets suitable for intelligent life are few and far between. As mentioned before, an Earth-like planet must be have these four characteristics: stability, habitability and water, planetary mass and planetary composition.

Probability 1 – by Amir D. Aczel

 

Amir D. Aczel (born November 6, 1950) is a lecturer in mathematics and the history of mathematics and science, and an author of popular books on mathematics and science.

 

Book Publ. January 20, 2000

 

The existence of intelligent alien life is not only probable, but certain, and Amir Aczel proves it in this eye-opening and controversial work. Many of us have scanned the night sky wondering: Is there life beyond the earth? And, if there is, could they be looking for us, too? Our quest for extraterrestrial life is widespread and entrenched. The SETI program searches for radio signals from the cosmos. NASA seeks and studies conditions that make life in outer space possible. We now know that planetary systems similar to ours exist and that our particular environment may not be the only one that can support life. It's not just UFOs and superstition; the search for alien life is the stuff of serious science. Using the famous Drake equation, Aczel presents evidence from across the sciences, fitting together the elements that make life possible. And then, with a bit of brilliant math, Aczel, an expert in statistics and probability, shows that the probability is 1: intelligent extraterrestrial life exists.

Scientists estimate that 60 Billion Alien Worlds could support life - Article

 

A new estimate suggests that 60 billion planets in the Milky Way galaxy alone may support life.

It was only recently that scientists used data from NASA’s Kepler space telescope to conclude that one Earth-size planet is likely in the habitable zone of each red dwarf star (which happens to be the most common type of star). But as Space.com explains, “a group of researchers has now doubled that estimate after considering how cloud cover might help an alien planet support life.”

So what does cloud cover have to do with potential habitability? Dorian Abbot, assistant professor of geophysical sciences at the University of Chicago, and member of the research team, explains, “Clouds cause warming, and they cause cooling on Earth . . . They reflect sunlight to cool things off, and they absorb infrared radiation from the surface to make a greenhouse effect. That’s part of what keeps the planet warm enough to sustain life.”

So…!!!

 

With only a small spectrum of information currently available, should we plainly assume, or just conservatively assume, that the probability that there is not only one, but countless of intelligent and or advance life-forms, or - extraordinarily advanced life-forms - in the Universe. And that they most probably have knowledge and technologies way beyond our current comprehension.

 

The matter of distances is not an issue at all if you consider advance knowledge and technologies; it is the “where are they from”, the ”how” they can “travel” or can “manifest” into our Reality or Dimension. And that leaves an open array...

That leaves us with an abundant and redundant state of perceiving the matter of Extra Terrestrial Life as a given fact, besides of the immense possibility that they may have been in our midst since our early beginnings, influencing us or guiding us toward our conscious peaceful evolution, so we can join them and eventually be a part of an vast  Cosmic Family?
