DailyDirt: Hello, World Universe! Hello? (Is This Thing On?)

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) hasn't yielded much, and some of the results are even a bit embarrassing. We don't really know what to look for when we're listening for alien signals. There's growing evidence that planets like ours are not rare in the universe, but that doesn't necessarily mean intelligent life is abundant. Given the vast distances to neighboring star systems, we're also not likely to visit them any time soon. After you've finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.

      Yes. No more money for research into eradicating cancer unless scientists know the steps that will eradicate it. Or at least the exact steps that will lead to that knowledge.

    The best proof of alien intelligence is that it avoids Earth.

    It's already hard to find intelligence on this planet.
