I'm feeling philosophical... Recently read an article about a planet found that has great potential for harbouring life, and as astronomy is a great hobby of mine, I thought I'd bring the discussion to The Lounge. What's everyone's thoughts? Are we alone? Personally, with the sheer vastness of space, I feel there would be some form of intelligent life out there. What Earth had to go through in order to become habitable is mind boggling, though I believe it could've happened elsewhere. I don't however, believe we will ever come in to contact with other intelligent beings in our lifetime, or in the near future for that matter.
